Blimey, dunno what's going on with so many bands cancelling gigs and splitting up but for Filter fans, it's bad news too...
Singer of the art-grungers Filter, Richard Patrick, has checked himself into a rehabilitation facility and all touring through the end of this year has been cancelled. There are no current plans to reschedule the cancelled shows.
Richard Patrick had this to say: "I want to apologise to all my friends and fans for having to cancel these upcoming shows, but right now I'm concerned about my health and want to get back into the best physical and mental condition to go back on the road next year."
All tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
DiScuss: Anyone know what shit he was filling himself full of? Why do so-called stars need to escape? Do you think the mainstream media, with it's demand for a spectacle, hyping up and smashing down bands like some kinda god, have much to do with it? And more to the point, do drugs make music any better? Comment below..
