From Blabbermouth: KATATONIA Explains Swiss Concert Cancellation - Oct. 31, 2007 Sweden's KATATONIA has issued the following update: "The members of KATATONIA have now since about two weeks been struggling with everything from the flu, ear infections, pneumonia and sinusitis. Two of the members are still on penicillin antibiotics to get well. "It's safe to say that KATATONIA never want or intend to cancel our own gigs, and it's never been a common situation in our past. Unfortunately, this time the Burgdorfer gig [on October 20] in Switzerland got suffering and had to be canceled in the last minute. "Why so late, some might rightfully ask? Well, it's easily explained — because we still intended to play it til the last minute! Eventually it just was not possible. The band was both advised and uncapable of flying or playing — doctor's orders. If we would look for replacements for the sick members, it would be an entirely new band playing and we're sure none wants to go see that. "With that said, we'll do our best to struggle our way through the Norwegian gig in Oslo [at Screamfest] on Saturday [November 3] and hope for your understanding if we're not in top shape yet." http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=83895 Still weird it took so long to release a statement, no one's ever sick enough to type something like that, unless they're in a coma or whatever.
