Finnish heavy metal powerhouse Battle Beast have announced the postponement of November and December 2023 tour dates due to vocalist Noora Louhimo falling ill. The singer was recently rushed to hospital and was diagnosed with a tear in the carotid artery.
New tour dates are yet to be announced.
The band issued a statement, which you can read below:
We regret to inform you that Noora was recently hospitalized following surprising and unexpected symptoms. In hospital she was diagnosed with a tear in the carotid artery.
While she is already discharged from hospital and sure to make a full recovery, the doctors have ordered her to restrain from any physical labour for the next month. In her current shape, Noora can’t perform without risking life-threatening complications.
Thus we are forced to reschedule our planned dates between 20.11.-1.12.2023. New tour dates will be announced soon and all bought tickets will be respected as they are for the new dates. Alternatively, you can follow the ticket vendors guidelines regarding refunds. Same instructions apply for VIP upgrades.
After 1.12.2023, all shows are to go on as planned.
”You all know the passion and love I have for our music and fans. Performing to you is my calling and I would never allow myself to give less than 100% to you. To be able to do this, I have to fully recover before getting back on stage in full beast mode.
Take care of yourselves, and the next time you will see me, I will be stronger than ever. Love you all.” states Noora herself.
Again we are truly sorry for this turn of events and ask for your understanding in putting Noora’s life and health first. We hope to be back with good news soon enough!
