Earlier this evening (February 15th), Machine Head took the stage at Coop de Mai in Clermont Ferrand, France. After making his way through five songs, frontman Robb Flynn was forced to halt the concert. The band has since posted the following message online:
“Clermont Ferrand, as you know, the chest flu and hacking cough that Robb had, stopped any sound from coming out of his throat 5 songs into our set. We are very sorry that we were unable to finish tonight’s performance. The doctor that visited Robb after the show instructed him not to sing for 4 days or his voice would not return for the tour. Unfortunately, what that means is Wednesday’s show in Luxembourg is on a ‘wait and see’ basis. We will keep you posted as soon as we know more information.”
