Mastodon Cancels Summer Tour Dates Due To Illness

Atlanta, Georgia based metal outfit Mastodon has announced that they have been forced to cancel their scheduled European summer tour, after guitarist Bill Kelleher was diagnosed with pancreatitus. Doctors have advised the guitar player to pursue further medication, but are optimistic he will make a full recovery. The band are also hoping that Kelleher will be enough to participate in the BlackDiamondSkye tour this September, with Alice In Chains and Deftones.

@Diamond Oz
Just noticed that Kelliher is misspelled 'Kelleher' in the article, and thought I'd point it out. /,,/

Oz: Also "The band are also hoping that Kelleher will be enough to participate" should probably read "will be well enough"?
