After missing a gig last night in Atlana, Meshuggah frontman Jens Kidman will be forced to miss tonight’s show at The Fillmore in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Jens is recovering from the flu.
“I just need to say a few words here guys. I’m truly unable to perform tonight. Again,” Kidman says in a statement online.
“Me not being able to do what I’m supposed to do is really, really frustrating and I feel that I’m letting you all down. Not just you, the fans, but the band as well.
“But we try to make the absolute best we can out of this situation.
“So it’s either cancel OR play for you guys anyway. We opt for playing. It’s what we’re here to do. So that’s what we’ll do. With your help, it’ll be awesome.
“I will see the doctor again tomorrow and will hopefully get a green light to perform in Philly. Fingers crossed.
“So a big humble thanks goes out to all of you for your support and understanding!!
Last night, the band reportedly played their set with a lifesize cardboard cutout of Kidman and his pre-recorded vocal tracks from a European.
