SLASH'S SNAKEPIT FORCED TO CANCEL OPENING DATES ON AC/DC's "STIFF UPPER LIP" TOUR
Slash's Snakepit has been forced to cancel performances on the 2nd leg of AC/DC's "Stiff Upper Lip" tour due to illness of the band's legendary namesake. Slash has been diagnosed with pneumonia and has been ordered by his doctor to rest. The band was originally scheduled to perform on the tour through April 29. Slash is expected to make a full recovery and plans to resume touring with his band in the near future.
Slash deeply regrets having to cancel these highly anticipated tour dates and sincerely appreciates the ongoing support received from his fans:
"I apologize to the fans and to AC/DC, but I don't want to get up there and do a half-ass show." Slash adds, "I hate to let people down, but it wouldn't be right to give them a performance that's anything less than our best."
