The Alarm cancelled their remaining European Tour dates for 2018 due to the ill health of singer Mike Peters. This announcement was made on their official Facebook page and website..
It is with regret that the remaining dates of The Alarm European Tour 2018 in Germany will be rescheduled due to the sudden and unexpected ill health of singer Mike Peters. Please watch social media and thealarm.com for ongoing updates. We will endeavour to provide updates where possible.
Dates for the rescheduled shows and more information for existing ticket holders will be released through the venue and promoter communication systems in due course.
Mike began feeling unwell on the morning of the Hamburg show, although found the strength to be able to complete the performance in the sold out venue. However, during the soundcheck at the Music Hall in Worpswede the next day, it became clear that Mike would not be able to work his way through a full set as normal. Rather than cancel at such a late stage, Mike went on stage with no set list and performed a ‘storytellers’ style concert so that the many fans (some of whom had travelled from Denmark and further afield), would not go home empty handed.
By today, it was hoped that Mike would make a recovery, but sadly his condition deteriorated further and so this morning was admitted into hospital in Germany, where doctors have advised that the tour be cancelled so that Mike can travel back to the U.K. in order to receive medication and time to recover properly.
Once again, we can only apologise for this turn of events and hope that no one has been truly inconvenienced. The decision to cancel was not taken lightly and ultimately driven by medical advice.
Thank you for your understanding and please stay tuned for information in regard to rescheduled dates.
We would like to thank the fans in Germany, Holland and Belgium for the messages of support…. we promise we will be back soon.
