One of the 50 or so members of the band Eluveitie has taken ill.
It seems Anna Murphy (who plays the all-important hurdygurdy and the flute and sings backups) has been forced to leave the band’s current South American tour.
“We’re very sorry to inform you that Anna won’t be able to play the upcoming Brazilian shows with us,” the band says.
“We started our South American tour yesterday in Buenos Aires, Argentina, when Anna got seriously ill on short notice. She wasn’t able to play the show yesterday and she was forced to fly back to Switzerland this morning.”
Damn, that sounds severe. I hope she’s OK.
“Of course, we will still play — none of the upcoming shows will be cancelled! We’ll do our very best to still rock the shit out of you, promised,” the band says. “Thank you all very much for your understanding. We’re looking forward to see you all soon!”
