Due to a heavy infection of his vocal chords, Tony Kakko (voc) had to visit a hospital in Budapest yesterday. Today’s show in Graz (18.11.2009) had to be cancelled as well as the two following shows in Vienna (19.11.2009) and in Munich (20.11.2009) as the severity of the infection does not allow him to perform on next few days.
SONATA ARCTICA regret to disappoint their fans in Graz, Vienna and Munich, but of course these shows will be re-scheduled and the new dates will be announced soon. Tickets for all shows will remain valid.
We hope that Tony will convalesce from his illness fast, so that the tour can go on with the show in Pratteln/Z7 (22.11.2009).
UPDATE: As announced previously, the 3 cancelled shows of the Sonata Arctica Tour 2009 (Graz, Vienna and Munich) are re-scheduled now.
