Meshuggah shared the bad news with fans via social media on Tuesday (December 21st) that they have been forced to postpone their U.S. tour for medical reasons.
They wrote, "We regret to inform that Meshuggah will have to reschedule their U.S. headline tour. While the ongoing pandemic has been throwing various curve balls on us all the past year, ultimately delaying the completion of the upcoming Meshuggah studio album - there are other concerns that have forced us to make this unfortunate decision.
"Determining factor is the need to prioritize the physical health of one of the band members who is currently undergoing medical treatment related to a skin condition on his hands, hindering him from rehearsals and from all in all playing his instrument.
"While we are optimistic for his future recovery we know it will not be possible for him and the band to be ready to perform already in February 2022.
"With these shows now moving, Converge will unfortunately no longer be able to do the tour. However we are grateful that Torche will still be performing with us. Another special guest to replace Converge and to complete the bill is to be announced.
"Tickets will remain valid from the original dates, please contact your ticket provider with any queries."
