The Strawbs Postpone Tour After Frontman Has Surgery

(Prog) The Strawbs have postponed the UK tour that was set to start later this month after frontman Dave Cousins underwent surgery for injuries sustained in a fall.

Their Plugged Unplugged electric shows are to be rescheduled for next year while the 70-year-old recovers. A statement reports: "Dave was taken to hospital in Margate on June 16 after choking on a cup of tea outside his house. This caused him to lose consciousness and smash his head on the pavement. He was discharged after this on June 19.

"Unfortunately this accident dislodged a kidney stone. On June 23 he was admitted to K&CH Hospital. He was operated on under general anaesthetic and discharged on June 26.

"He is recovering well, but is not yet fit enough to take the stresses and strains of a band tour. We are all disappointed - however, all Strawbs fans will understand that this decision is the right one, to make sure that Dave is able to recuperate fully." Read more here.
