He writes, "Dear fans, due to financial and medical reasons, I've been forced to part ways with the Blaze Bayley 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!"
