Hamburg, Copenhagen Show Cancelled Due To Injury
Update: Chad aggravated an old injury that had not healed while playing last week in Paris. He had an MRI that revealed the injury and waited to see if he could play last week. Madrid was cancelled to allow him time for evaluation in Paris and he came to Italy hoping to play the remainder of the shows. After the weekend shows he was in pain and all were very concerned that he could need more than rest so this week's sold out Hamburg and Copenhagen shows have been cancelled to allow Chad more time to see specialists in London. Chad is a very physical drummer who cannot play a show at 50% and it is very hard for him to hold back onstage. He is very sorry he cannot play for the German and Danish fans this week. We hope we will be back to play very soon.
We are sorry to inform our Spanish fans that Chickenfoot cannot perform tomorrow night Jul 1 in Madrid due to a serious injury to drummer Chad Smith. Chad was performing on stage last night in Paris and during the show he hurt his right arm badly. He has torn his small bicep and cannot play the show Weds July 1st. The band is very sorry they cannot play for their Spanish fans this week and plan to return as soon as possible.
