Down Cancel Canadian Shows Due To Strep Throat
Down have posted the following message to their MySpace:
"When something like strep throat is caught by just one member of your band or crew, it is inevitable that the majority of everyone else, (band/crew) will catch the same illness due to the tight living quarters. Well, to say the least, it got Philip the worst. He has never lost his voice before in any touring situation. He has now, and the recovery must run it's course. Down, as a whole, apologize sincerely to Black Sabbath, and all of their people, and to Megadeth, but especially to all the fans that wanted to see us. We wanted to see you as well! We will return as soon as time permits. This is a frustrating time, even depressing. For us (down), it's like training for the olympics, and being injured at the last second. Rest assured, we will return, with a vengeance. We apologize again. much love and a hopeful speedy recovery."
It is currently unclear how many of the Canadian tour dates supporting Megadeth and Heaven and Hell will be affected, but their participation on the Canadian leg of the tour only runs through March 28, so they could conceivably all be impacted. Down is scheduled to begin some headlining tour dates two days later on March 30.
