Ghost Forced To Cancel Festival Performances Due To Illness


(hennemusic) Ghost were forced to cancel a pair of festival appearances this past weekend due to illness. The Swedish rockers pulled out of Pinkpop in the Netherlands on Saturday and the UK's Download Festival on Sunday after their frontman came down with a case of laryngitis.

"We are truly sorry about last nights' and tonights' cancellations on Pinkpop Festival and Download Festival," said the band via social media. "Papa Emeritus III has been sick for a week and had a very weak voice on Friday nights' show at Download Paris. Waking up on Saturday with no voice at all, doctors orders were rest and absolutely no talking.

"Fornicating, however, was no problem so we have sent him to a so-called 'Adult Spa' somewhere in Northern Europe to recuperate and now we are aiming at being back on stage in Oslo on June 15.

"But mourn not, children. We are coming back to both the United Kingdom and The Netherlands, bigger than ever, headlining with everything on top + then some, within not too long. Stay tuned for more info." Read more here.
