Ahhh, this week has been a rough one for us in the UK, which we won't go into. However, we do have some news from Sevendust who where due to be going on tour with Alter Bridge, Shinedown & The Raven Age in December.
On 12th December 2019, Sevendust posted on Social Media the following statement.
"UK Family - It is with a heavy heart we have to say - we will not be able to join our brothers in @AlterBridge & @Shinedown on our upcoming U.K. dates. Morgan is sick and in the hospital and undr Dr. Orders not to leave the country. We WILL make it up to you! See you at Xmas" - View Twitter Source
It is not yet clear what has caused drummer Morgan Rose to fall ill and to be hospitalised. It was, however, reported on Blabbermouth that Trevor Omar, who runs the drummers official clothing line, said that "Morgan is in the hospital and stable" as well as asking fans for their "Thoughts and Prayers"
Alongside this announcement, Omar noted that "unfortunately there isn't many details that I or anyone else can give" and that once "there are details available to give, it will be passed to the appropriate channels".
Sevendust will be performing an "Acoustic Xmas" on the following dates:
28th December 2019 - Athens, GA
29th December 2019 - Orlando, FL

Due to Morgan Rose not being able to leave the country under Drs orders, we will unfortunately not be seeing Sevendust appear in the UK until given the all clear.

"Secondly, we've had an incredible time support @Alterbridge + @Shinedown around Europe for the past month and we're looking forward to continuing that in the UK with 6 arena shows! 2/2"
