Norwegian rockers TURBONEGRO who recently cancelled their European tour due to the "serious illness" of the group's guitarist Knut "Euroboy" Schreiner have issued the following statement:
"It is with great further regret that we will now have to cancel our trip to the U.S. in April to play the West Coast shows, most regrettably the Coachella festival.
"A huge apology to the U.S. fans and to the promoters. I'm sure that all will understand that this decision wasn't taken lightly, but it is the right decision for Euroboy. He is in good shape, all considered, but his treatment makes it impossible for him be away for long periods of time and certainly not to be taking long haul flights.
"We are keeping the European shows from May 2nd forward in place, as this schedule works within the boundaries of his treatment.
"It's a delicate situation we find ourselves in. Our first priority is Euroboy's health; we'll look at everything else when we know that he is well."
TURBONEGRO's latest album, "Retox", was released in June 2007.
