Artist News: Fish Guitarist Suffers Heart Attack, Shows Rescheduled

Posted on Saturday, December 22 @ 19:26:46 UTC by nightowl

Fish reported Tuesday, December 18, that long time guitarist Frank Usher suffered a mild heart attack the night before. While Usher is recovering, the December 20, 21, and 22 shows were rescheduled to March 25, 26 and 27, accordingly. "Despite Frank's insistence, in his typically stubborn fashion, that he wanted to play the forthcoming shows the doctors have said it is impossible and highly dangerous. With all three gigs nearly sold out and also sweat boxes it would have been foolhardy of him to even consider performing," Fish noted. "At only 48 hours notice it is impossible to bring in a replacement guitarist and I am left with no other option but to postpone the three shows.

"I apologise once again for the inconvenience caused and I am sure a lot of you will be as frustrated as we are at losing what were going to be celebratory shows in the run up to the holidays. As you can possibly imagine we are all shocked and concerned for Frank and wish him a speedy recovery."

The rescheduled dates have been added to the end of the planned UK tour, which commences March 7 at the Liquid Room in Edinburgh, Scotland.
