Black Label Society Drops Off Pedal To The Metal Tour

Black Label Society has announced that they will not be performing on any more Pedal To The Metal tour dates due to lead vocalist/guitarist Zakk Wylde being taken to hospital when it was discovered he is suffering from blood clots. The tour will continue with the rest of the scheduled bands performing.

Zakk Wylde himself has issued the following message: "To all our Black Label Family Worldwide, thanks for all the Get Wells. Every 48 hours in the ER to check my blood, had a CT scan today and have blood clots in each of my lungs as well as my leg. Can't sing because pushing can cause an embollism."

On the real though, clots can be deadly and i hope zakk gets through this, he s a good man and wish him nothing but the best...
Just out of curiosity if zakk is hospitalized for a period of time, i would hope ozzy would take time out of his busy schedule and pay a visit to his 2nd best guitar player hes ever had, and a loyal friend

That sucks, is it possible to still get a refund even if the show isn't technically canceled? Get well soon!

Sorry to hear about Zakk. Sorry for those who will not get to see BLS. I wish for Zakk a speedy recovery, his fans will still be here supporting him.

Goose - The only way you could get a refund is if the headliner cancels, which is Mudvayne. Sorry about your luck. Go to the show, drink some beer, scope out the titties, bang your head and have a good time.
