Michael Schenker, Uli Jon Roth and Leslie West Tour Postponement Explained

Yesterday we told you that the 3 Guitar Heroes Tour featuring Michael Schenker, Uli Jon Roth and Leslie West has been postponed. We now know why.

SKH Music further explained that the tour was postponed, "due to insurmountable travel issues. When faced with securing a viable path for Westıs travel while still confined to a wheelchair, the search for a vehicle went on for months, and it has been called off. Last week, West was fitted with a prosthetic leg, but it will take months before he is able to live a normal life with the appendage, and there is no way to tour at this time without the security of the wheelchair he has been confined to post-amputation."

As our news partner, Rock News Desk reported back in July: "West contracted an infection connected with diabetes on the way to a Mountain show in Mississippi. A two-day battle to stop it spreading to the rest of his body led to half of his right leg being removed."

The 3 Guitar Heroes tour was originally set to kick off on October 6th and run until November 11th. The Schenker camp said that more info will be made available at a later date.
