STONE SOUR: Berlin Concert Cancellation Explained

STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor (also of SLIPKNOT) has issued the following statement:

"The German tour has been one of the best tours of our lives and I wanted to apologize to each and every fan who bought a ticket for tonight's STONE SOUR show in Berlin!

"I've been ordered by the local doctor to not sing tonight and we therefore, had to cancel the show.

"As you guys know, if I felt that I could do the show tonight, I would! Berlin has some of the most loyal and intense STONE SOUR fans in the world and we hate not being able to perform. We're working as fast as we can to reschedule the show and information should be available within the next couple days.

"I started feeling sick yesterday and in an effort to feel healthy for the show in Berlin I stopped talking immediately after the show last night in Hamburg. I tried talking today and even made it through a brief MTV interview, but after I came back to the venue the doctor had one look at my throat and ordered me to rest, stop talking and to not sing.

"I, as well as the rest of the band, apologize and look forward to seeing you soon!"

As previously reported, STONE SOUR performed a backstage intimate set during the Family Values tour on September 19 on 98 Rock in Tampa Bay. Watch the performance online at this location.

STONE SOUR are continuing to tour behind "Come What(Ever) May". As the follow-up to their four-year-old debut album, which was twice Grammy-nominated, certified gold and contained the huge rock hit "Bother", "Come What(ever) May" is filled with volatile songs that mix heaviness with sharp hooks. The songs question the motives of false prophets (the title cut), tear apart hypocrisy ("Sillyworld") and smash complacency ("30/30-150", "Hell & Consequences").

The band's potency as a live act was underlined this summer when they toured with KORN and the DEFTONES on the massively successful "The Family Values Tour". Look for STONE SOUR to embark on the "Music As A Weapon Tour" with DISTURBED November 15, a trek that will bring them to arenas across the country.
