Blues Pills cancel tour dates

Blues Pills have cancelled their remaining European tour dates as a result of "serious illness."

The rising-star band say they’re heartbroken, but have no choice but to return home.

Affected UK shows are:

Apr 22: Manchester Star and Garter

Apr 24: Glasgow Audio

Apr 25: Nuneaton Queens Hall

Apr 26: London Desertfest

A brief statement reports: “Nothing gives us more joy than playing, and we were looking forward to the places we would go, shows we would play, and people we would meet. But in this situation, health is the number one priority.

“We’re very sorry to all the fans, and the promoters who are let down. Please send us your positive thoughts. For ticket refund please contact your point of purchase. We will try to make good for these canceled shows as soon as possible, and as of now this Summer´s festival schedule remains confirmed as it is.”

The American-Swedish-French quartet recently launched an EP recorded live on iconic German TV show Rockpalast. Their debut album is due for release in the summer.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
