Jeff Beck has been forced to cancel the next leg of his European tour due to what is being is described as “emergency medical attention.”
The guitarist has been told from doctors to avoid performing for, at least, the next six weeks although his medical condition is not being discussed. Beck turned 70 on Tuesday.
The official statement read: It is with the greatest regret that Jeff Beck has been forced to cancel the forthcoming European dates of his worldwide tour, set to begin in Austria on 27 June.
Following many months of international touring and after seeking emergency medical attention, Jeff will now undertake a short hospital procedure and his doctors have instructed a complete break from performance for a total of six weeks. Following the treatment, Jeff will fulfil his US tour commitments beginning in Missoula MT on 8th August.
He sends his profound apologies to those fans who had bought tickets for the European concerts and very much looks forward to playing for his American audiences after he has completed his treatment.
