Blaze Bayley, the former lead singer of Iron Maiden, was rushed to the hospital after suffering a heart attack at home. The news was broken in a post by his management team on Facebook.

According to the statement, the 59-year-old metal singer is currently hospitalized in stable condition and awaiting further treatment. As a result, he has postponed his upcoming shows.

The statement reads as follows:

“We sincerely regret to announce that Blaze had a heart attack at home yesterday evening & is now in hospital in a stable condition, awaiting news of further surgery/treatment. He is in good spirits in the circumstances but utterly disappointed to have to postpone our imminent shows due in March & April. Ticket refunds will be available at source but we truly hope you will keep your tickets & make it to the new dates which we will be announcing as soon as they are scheduled.

Regarding shows already booked for June-November this year, we understandably have to wait a short while to see how quick Blaze’s recovery will be, so please stay tuned & meanwhile most importantly we’re sure you will join us in wishing him a complete & speedy recovery.

Blaze misses you, cannot wait to regain full health & see you all again.

Every Storm Ends… ‘your heart will heal’.

Thank you so much everyone for your understanding & support.”
