Spiritualized have been rocked by the news that one of their members has blood cancer.
According to nme.com, Spiritualized were forced to cancel a show in Norway at the eleventh hour last week after a percussionist, thought to be Tom Edwards, was diagnosed with the condition.
Jason Pierce and gang were set to play the Oya-Festival in Oslo when their percussionist was diagnosed as ill. Although a spokesperson for Spiritualized has said the band member’s condition is serious, as-of-yet, no additional details have been made available.
It hasn’t yet been decided if the band will go ahead with their Reading and Leeds Carling Weekend gigs on 23rd – 25th August.
