W.A.S.P.: Buffalo Show Cancelled, BLACKIE Hospitalized For 'Food Poisoning'

W.A.S.P. have cancelled their scheduled appearance at Club Infinity in Buffalo (Clarence), New York Wednesday night (August 11). According to one fan's posting on the band's official forum, a club representative has indicated that "the opening bands [are] still going to play, but 'W.A.S.P.'s singer [Blackie Lawless] is on the way to the hospital for food poisoning, he said that they are going to try to play if they can, but we won't know until after the openers go on.' " The fan goes on to say that he placed another phone call to the venue an hour later, only to be told that "W.A.S.P. has cancelled and again that Blackie was on his way to the hospital, only instead of just food poisoning the girl tells me that '...an ulcer...um...a stomach virus...err...food poisoning...something is wrong with his stomach.'"

As previously reported, W.A.S.P. cancelled their sold-out concert at Foufounes Electriques in Montreal Sunday night (August 8) after the club's stage was allegedly deemed not strong enough to withstand the 1,000-lbs. mic stand that W.A.S.P. wanted to use as part of their live show. The group's scheduled performance in Ottawa Tuesday night (August 10) was called off the barriers in front of the stage at the Barrymore's Music Hall were deemed inadequate.
