(CelebrityAccess) — English glam/R&B band Mott the Hoople, has canceled the entirety of their upcoming tour of North America due to illness.
A statement from the group’s publicist said that singer and guitarist Ian Hunter has developed a severe case of tinnitus and has been advised by his doctors to discontinue performing until his condition improves.
“Hey Kids, I’m afraid I’m not very well. It happened out of the blue three weeks ago: I got hit heavily with tinnitus. It’s unrelenting and on doctor’s orders, I’ve had to cancel everything for the time being,” Hunter said in a statement posted to social media.
“I’ve had it on and off for years but it’s always slid away. This time it’s stayed – it knocks the stuffing and the confidence out of you,” Hunter added.
The band was scheduled to hit the road in North America this fall, starting on October 21st at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester NY.
No plans to reschedule the affected shows have been announced and refunds for tickets are available at the point of sale.
