Cannibal Corpse singer George "Corpsegrinder" Fischer is suffering from viral lung infection and is said to be is in a lot of pain, according to the band's spokesperson. Sadly, he was unable to play Tuesday night's show in Pittsburg, so the group did an instrumental set.

Although George is said to be "alright" and "not lying sick or anything," he cannot be around smoke until he gets better. There will be "No Smoking" signs at the clubs where they will be playing next, and all fans approaching him after shows are being asked to refrain from smoking while in his presence.

"The band will do their very best like always to finish off the remaining seven dates of the tour," the spokesperson continued. "George will give it his all to finish them, but if he cannot, then it would be understandable.

"There will be announcements at each club the day before the show regarding his condition, and if he will be able to do the show or not. And, depending on if you wish to see the band with or without George, fans will have the option of attending the show, or going back home."
