Wolfmother cancels European tour

    In a quick, unfortunate turn of events, Wolfmother has canceled its entire European tour due to an unknown illness plaguing lead singer Andrew Stockdale.

    A statement from the band was released to the organizers of the Main Square Festival in France reading, “We are sorry to announce that Wolfmother have been forced to cancel its full European tour for June and July. Due to medical reasons, Andrew Stockdale, Wolfmother’s lead singer is unable to fly.” The tour included sharing the stage with Kiss for a handful of dates in Germany, opening up for Pearl Jam at Hard Rock Calling, and appearances at T In The Park, Rock Am Ring.

    The Hives will get a nudge up the bill and Killswitch Engine will be replacing the band at Hard Rock Calling and Download Festival, respectively. Other Euro festivals have not yet named replacements. We will update you with more substitutions as they are announced.


    Contactmusic reports that the band will be back on the road by August for their US dates, which bodes well for Lollapalooza (and…Sturgis Rally) ticket holders for now. We sincerely wish Andrew a speedy and healthy recovery.

    While we wait for a more extensive release from the band, you can still purchase tickets for many of the upcoming August dates via
