Machine Head Scrap Shows Due To Sick Frontman


Machine Head Robb Flynn

The band axed their concert in Clermont-Ferrand, France after only five songs on Monday (15Feb16) because Flynn was unable to sing due to a persistent cough.

They postponed a gig in Luxembourg on Wednesday (17Feb16) and have now announced they have to cancel a show in Reims, France for Friday night (19Feb16) because Flynn is still battling the illness.

Flynn writes on Facebook.com, "I went to the hospital in Reims yesterday as every time I cough it feels like I'm inhaling fire while someone jabs a screwdriver sideways in my throat. The doctor said I have severe bronchitis, a burned trachea, and a throat infection. He gave me a whole new set of meds, inhalers, and antibiotics to take, (which I'm taking), plus sitting in the insanely hot sauna every day to sweat this s**t out.

Machine Head Refuse To Play In San Diego


Machine Head

Heavy rockers Machine Head will never play another show in San Diego, California - they've "fired" the city because concert audiences there are too boring.

Frontman Robb Flynn insists he never has a good time when the band plays in the city, so they won't be going back.

He tells Drivetime guy David Grant on Rock Radio based in Glasgow, Scotland, "A lot of crowds are awesome. But if we're playing San Diego, we're not going to go on the radio and say, 'San Diego crowds are awesome' - because they're not. They're beat. That's MAChine Head slang for 'We don't like them.'

"They don't come to a show and rage and go crazy. They come to a show and say, 'Okay... this is cool. Oh, I like this song.' We're not into that. I don't know why they come to a rock show with that kind of attitude. So we don't go to San Diego anymore. They're fired."
