Bill Ward has cancelled all his upcoming Day of Errors tour dates after being hospitalised with a heart problem.
In a note posted on his official Instagram account, Bill apologised to fans and explained “I’ve never experienced this particular type of heart problem before, and due to its nature, I had to make the decision to cancel the dates.”
The legendary Black Sabbath drummer’s new band Day of Errors were due to kick off their seven-date tour of America’s West Coast on Thursday 7th December in Eugene, Oregon.
Bill’s full post reads:
“It’s with great, great sadness that I must tell you I have to cancel the Day Of Errors tour dates scheduled in December. I wound up in hospital this past weekend with heart problems. I am OK and in good recovery at this time. However, I’ve never experienced this particular type of heart problem before, and due to its nature, I had to make the decision to cancel the dates.
“I want to send my sincere apologies to everyone who was planning to come out to the shows. I’m so sorry we won’t be making it – I was looking forward to seeing you all and sharing this music with you. I’ll be in touch soon.
“All my love, Bill"
It is with great sadness to share with you, the cancellation of the @dayoferrorsofficial tour. Please see personal message from Bill in the last post. We are so very sorry, love you all, and appreciate your immense support! Note that ALL tickets will be refunded. Please contact your venue’s box office for more. Thank you.
A note on Day of Errors’ official website confirms that the tour dates have been cancelled and won’t be rescheduled. All fans with tickets can get a refund from the point of purchase.
Day of Errors consists of Bill on drums alongside Joe Amodea on guitar/vocals and Kill Devil Hill singer Jason "Dewey" Bragg on vocals. They made their live debut at Gaslamp in Long Beach, California in June 2016.
Bill has previously described their sound as “loud, hard, with overtures of gut-kicking heavy, heavy parts."
Everyone at Planet Rock wishes Bill a speedy recovery.
