WITHIN TEMPTATION guitarist Robert Westerholt has issued the following update:
"Unfortunately, I have to inform you that I will not be joining the rest of the band on the tour that starts tonight. During an unfortunate accident, I severely bruised my right thumb, making it impossible for me to play guitar. Of course I'm very disappointed that I can't visit you all as I was really looking forward to it a lot!!
"The band will be playing with the five of them, so they will not be joined by an extra guitar player. I'm confident that you will make up for the difference by screaming even louder than you usually do!
"I will definitely be back for the (sold-out!) Ahoy show in February, hope to see you all there!"
