BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's ZAKK WYLDE Suffers Blood Clot, Cancels Two Shows

According to the Omaha World-Herald, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY was forced to cancel two shows on its current tour after the band's frontman, Zakk Wylde, suffered a blood clot in his leg.

Tonight's (Thursday, September 30) concert at the Anchor Inn in Omaha, Nebraska and Friday's gig at in Clive, Iowa, have been called off, but the group plans on completing the rest of the tour, according to BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's publicist.

Wylde was rushed to an Omaha hospital where he remained Thursday night. He is said to be "doing well."

According to the Omaha World-Herald, opening bands CLUTCH, CHILDREN OF BODOM and 2 CENTS performed their sets at the Anchor Inn, where around 1,500 fans turned up for the gig. Those people will be able to attend a rescheduled concert for free. Ticketholders are being asked to hold onto their tickets.

Wylde was first hospitalized with blood clots in August 2009, causing BLACK LABEL SOCIETY to drop off last year's "Pedal To The Metal Tour".
