QUEENSRŸCHE Backing Vocalist PAMELA MOORE: 'The Show Must Go On!'

QUEENSRŸCHE backing vocalist Pamela Moore — the voice of "Sister Mary" from QUEENSRŸCHE's legendary concept album "Operation: Mindcrime" and its sequel, "Operation: Mindcrime II" — came down with a "violent case of food poisoning" and was hospitalized August 30, making it impossible for her to perform at the Saenger Theater in Mobile, Alabama later that evening. As a result, the band was forced to "considerably" edit its performance in Mobile, resulting in "a number of technical glitches, missed cues and problems synching up the video to the performances," according to one BLABBERMOUTH.NET reader who attended the show (as first reported here yesterday). Moore has since issued the following statement regarding her condition:

"I'm just getting ready for the show tonight [Aug. 31] in Clearwater. Yesterday was such a nightmare. I was feeling so great in the morning, ate some food in catering, then two or three hours later felt like someone smacked me in the stomach!! Was not a pretty sight, I was so embarrassed and so humiliated!! I was in emergency for eight hours while the band tried to piece a show together for Alabama... I felt so badly. I was pumped with three liters of fluid and anitbiotics and today, I'm keeping down the food but I dont' have a lot of energy... but THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!"

QUEENSRŸCHE's next performance is scheduled for Friday night (September 1) at the Pompano Amphitheater in Pompano Beach, Florida.
