LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Michael Schenker, Uli Jon Roth and Leslie West have postponed the 3 Guitar Heroes tour that was set to commence on October 6 in Norfolk, CT.
According to a statement, the postponement is due to "insurmountable travel issues." "When faced with securing a viable path for West's travel while still confined to a wheelchair, the search for a vehicle went on for months, and it has been called off…There is no way to tour at this time without the security of the wheelchair he has been confined to post-amputation."
Last week, West was fitted with a prosthetic leg, but it will take months before he is able to resume life as usual with the appendage.
Plans are moving forward to explore restaging this tour in the New Year.
