On July 21st, Jason Newsted was diagnosed with walking pneumonia. As such, he and his band were forced to miss a week's worth of shows on Gigantour "under doctor's orders." The bassist/vocalist has just checked in with the following good news:
"I'm feeling a bit better, this pneumonia bug can last a few weeks sometimes... I gotta keep pushing... the show must go on! We'll be firing up the metal machine again beginning tomorrow (July 30th) in Everett, WA. We have a couple of very big weeks ahead with Gigantour and the release of our Heavy Metal Music LP on August 6th! Cheers & let's fukking rock! See ya out there."
