Mastodon cancels European tour

Posted By on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 5:36 PM


Pitchfork reports that Atlanta metalheads Mastodon have canceled a boatload of summer tour dates in Europe. Apparently guitarist Bill Kelliher has been diagnosed with pancreatitis. Ouch.

Kelliher is expected to make a full recovery, but the band has nixed the Euro-trip to, y'know, let the healing process begin. The band is still expected to hit the road this fall with Deftones and the retooled version of Alice in Chains. They will play that Aaron's/Lakewood/Hi-Fi Buys monstrosity on 9/28. Get well soon, Bill!
