IN EXTREMO forced to postpone Russian dates
Guitar player urgently needs surgery; all bought tickets remain valid
It is with greatest regret we have to announce that the In Extremo shows planned to take place in Russia from 20. to 28.09.2018 will have to be postponed to 28.02. - 09.03.2019.
Please see the band’s statement below:
"Dear In Extremo fans in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus! Although the anticipation and preparations for the upcoming tour in your beautiful countries were already running on full steam for whole band, unfortunately, we are now forced to postpone the upcoming shows to the upcoming year. This is due to serious health problems of our guitarist, Basti, which require an urgent surgery intervention that cannot be deferred further! Basti has suffered a lung injury during the last Summer festival dates, which has now caused a so-called “Pneumothorax”. Therefore Basti needs a surgery operation now as quickly as possible so that it does not cause any long termed damage to his health. Playing the tour with such an injury would actually be life threatening for Basti, so we have had no other choice here. Playing the shows without Basti or with someone else as a stand-in was not an option for us as the Band. (…) Basti sends you warm greetings, he is very sorry for the whole situation and he promises to get back on his feet as soon as possible! Greetings to all of you – yours IN EXTREMO!“
