Slayer Cancel Gig After King's Hospital Dash
Rockers SLAYER were forced to axe their show in Holland on Monday (02Aug10) after guitarist KERRY KING was hospitalised with food poisoning.
The band pulled out of the gig in Tilburg when King began feeling ill and vomiting on Monday afternoon.
The guitarist was subsequently admitted to a local hospital where he received treatment for the ailment and he is now on the road to recovery.
Slayer anticipates they will be able to perform at the 013 venue for their scheduled show on Tuesday (03Aug10).
The band's publicist tells Blabbermouth.net, "(Kerry) couldn't keep anything down and was really sick. He was taken to the hospital and has been getting liquids (he's been able to keep those down), so he is definitely doing better.
"But he was so sick, there was no way he would have been able to play tonight's show. The doctors say he'll be back on stage tomorrow night."
The drama comes just days after the band's support act, The Haunted, pulled out of the remaining European shows due to illness.
