Tour

Bad news from the tour-section. Unfortunately, the band cancelled their tour due to health issues. As stated in a public announcement on the band’s official accounts, singer and guitarist Stu Mackenzie needed treatments for his Crohn’s disease. Music Daily included King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard earlier this summer in our coverage for Desert Daze Music Fest.

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard’s Social Media Update

The band went on their social accounts to release a statement about the problem.
Unfortunately due to a personal health crisis we’re going to have to cancel the remaining EU and UK dates.  

For the past decade or so I’ve dealt with Crohn’s Disease the best I can. It’s a miracle we haven’t cancelled any shows in the past. But right now, my health is in really bad shape and I need to get home for some urgent treatment. 

I’ve always kept my struggles with Crohn’s private. I guess I didn’t want to be defined by it. And maybe I’m not defined by it, but I’m certainly dictated by it. It’s looming threat has shaped almost every major decision in my adult life. I think about it and plan for it and around it every day. I know a lot of people deal with chronic illnesses. I’m sorry. It fucking sucks. 

Sorry to everybody who bought tickets, to everyone who helped make the shows happen, our crew, our management and agents. We’ll reschedule the shows that can be rescheduled and there will be full refunds available for all the headline shows from your point of purchase on Monday. 

Being able to travel the world and play live music for people every night is such a privilege and I’m so grateful for the shows we were able to make happen in Ireland, Croatia and Czech Republic. Thanks for understanding and again, I’m SO sorry. Love Stu
