Michael Schenker, Uli Jon Roth and Leslie West Tour Postponement Explained
SKH Music further explained that the tour was postponed, "due to insurmountable travel issues. When faced with securing a viable path for WestΉs 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."
