Leslie West Injury Scuppers Guitar Heroes Tour
Joint tour with Schenker and Roth has been postponed due to travel problemsIt was announced yesterday that Leslie West's tour along with Uli Jon Roth and Michael Schenker - dubbed the 3 Guitar Heroes Tour - was being postponed, but no reason was given.
Now Antimusic reports that the cancellation was due to West's recent ill-health.
SKH Music further explained that the tour was postponed, "due to insurmountable travel issues. When faced with securing a viable path for West¹s travel while still confined to a wheelchair, the search for a vehicle went on for months, and it has been called off. Last week, West was fitted with a prosthetic leg, but it will take months before he is able to live a normal life with the appendage, and there is no way to tour at this time without the security of the wheelchair he has been confined to post-amputation."
