MESHUGGAH singer Jens Kidman is suffering what many North Americans have battled this winter season - the flu. Last night in Atlanta the audience took over and "helped turn a really shitty situation into an unbelievable night for us," the band exclaimed.
Kidman is still suffering as Meshuggah heads to Charlotte, NC tonight (February 13th). An update from the frontman reads: "I just need to say a few words here guys. I'm truly unable to perform tonight. Again. Me not being able to do what I'm supposed to do is really really frustrating and I feel that I'm letting you all down. Not just you, the fans, but the band as well. But we try to make the absolute best we can out of this situation. So its either cancel OR play for you guys anyway. We opt for playing. Its what we're here to do. So that's what we'll do. With your help it'll be awesome. I will see the doctor again tomorrow and will hopefully get a green light to perform in Philly. Fingers crossed. So a big humble thanks goes out to all of you for your support and understanding!! Let the mayhem commence Charlotte!!!"
