From www.blazebayley.net _____________ Personal message from Blaze Dear fans, Due to financial and medical reasons Ive been forced to part ways with the band . I will give a full statement in the next few days about my future plans. I hope that all my fans will keep on supporting me in my further projects. The English dates will be postponed to December but the festivals in Germany, Sweden, Lithuania and the show in Istanbul will definitely proceed! BB _____________ That fucking sucks. Poor Blaze has suffered from terrible management since his split with Maiden and keeps getting the short end of the stick it seems. The dude should be playing to far bigger crowds and better festival circuits after those last two albums. Damn.
