(Classic Rock) Rick Wakeman has called off his Wakemanfest event over health concerns. He's also dropped a piano tour from his 2015 schedule, while a Christmas performance of Journey To The Centre Of The Earth is in doubt, and plans for next year will be curtailed.
It follows what he calls a "serious health scare" that took place earlier this year, after he finally began listening to warnings from his family and management.
Wakeman says on his website: "Although my health has improved, and blood pressure heading the right way, it's meant that, on advice, I have had to take a really close look at what is currently in for the rest of this year.
"Apart from Wakemanfest, piano dates in Scandinavia currently pencilled for November and December have had to go, and the proposed Journey To The Centre Of The Earth in Tenerife at Christmas is under review." Read more here.
