The Ocean Missing Tonight's Summer Slaughter Date Due To Health Issue

The Ocean is currently out on the Summer Slaughter tour, but the band will be missing tonight's stop. The band has issued the following statement about the situation:

"The Ocean will not play the Myrtle Beach Summer Slaughter show today.

"Our drummer Luc woke up this morning with his foot twice as wide as it's long... turns out that he's caught gout. I thought this was something that only grandmothers get, but apparently you can get it at any age, from eating bad food and drinking too much. And he's had heaps of both the last few days...

"We apologize to the people who came out to see us tonight, trust me if we could, we would play, but there is nothing we can do right now, he's been fed a cocktail of steroids, but he still can't even walk.

"Fingers crossed that a he will be alright tomorrow again."
