James demoner verkar ännu en gång tagit överhanden om hans kropp. I ett pressmeddelande bekräftar resten av gruppen att James tvingats ta in på rehab för att få hjälp att förhoppningsvis en gång för alla besegra djävulen i flaskan som tar över hela hans liv. Resterande delen av turnén i Australien och Nya Zeeland är nu uppskjuten på obestämd tid. Vi önskar naturligtvis James ett snabbt tillfrisknande.
As most of you probably know, our brother James has been struggling with addiction on and off for many years. He has now, unfortunately, had to re-enter a treatment program to work on his recovery again.
We fully intend to make our way to your part of the world as soon as health and schedule permit. We’ll let you know as soon as we can. Once again, we are devastated that we have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows. We appreciate your understanding and support for James and, as always, thank you for being a part of our Metallica family.
All tickets purchased to the shows in Australia and New Zealand, including Enhanced Experiences and Black Tickets, will be fully refunded. More details on how to obtain your refund are below”.
