Children Of Bodom have cancelled more shows as a result of their frontman being in the hospital, including the upcoming “Ruisrock Festival.”
Laiho is being treated for what the band called a “serious infection.”
Today, the band updated fans.
“This is not an easy letter for us to write. Alexi is suffering from a serious infection. He is still in hospital in Oslo under supervision of the doctors and we don’t know yet when they will release him.
“We have no choice other than canceling Ruisrock in Turku on Saturday as well,” says the statement. “This is a very bitter pill for us to swallow. We had decided to do only two festivals in our homeland this summer to make it real special, and now this.
“We hope that we will be able to make up for this very soon. To all our fans who had been looking forward to rock with us at Ruisrock this weekend, take our apologies and enjoy the festival. In our spirits, we will be there, too.”
For Alexi’s sake, I hope this infection he has was transmitted sexually. If you’re going to get infected, might as well get the poison out while you’re at it.
