Sadly, the decision was collectively made by my partners, our agency
and reluctantly, yours truly … to cancel/ postpone the balance of
dates on this German Tour.
I’m quite sick and that’s all there is to it. No voice, bronchitis and
feeling thoroughly wiped out. The Warrior is down but not out
After visiting a great doctor in Augsburg, Bavaria, this morning, Dr.
Andreas Weigel, I felt buoyed up enough, armed with meds, to set off
for Switzerland but as the day progressed, I knew that my health was
further waning. My voice, which never usually lets me down, simply
vanished and was replaced by the worst pain in my throat in addition to
the bronchitis and accompanying deep chested cough.
So, that’s it. We’re going to reschedule for sure (in May hopefully)
and the venues have been very understanding and kind. Hopefully our fans
will understand too. I feel bad for our support on this tour; the Doris
Brendel Band who collectively put such a lot of effort into their shows
and of course all the travel and expense they’ve incurred but there was
simply no way out of it and my feeling is that to have continued, would
have been seriously risky all round. Thank you guys for taking it on
the chin. Your new material sounded fabulous and I know that many of our
fans have taken you to their hearts.
