Jens Kidman (Meshuggah) Releases Statement Regarding His Current Unavailability!

As previously reported, last night the band were forced to perform without their vocalist Jens Kidman at Center Stage in Atlanta, Georgia. 

Unfortunately, Jens is still under the weather and wont be able to perform tonight at The Fillmore in Charlotte, North Carolina. He has released the following statement regarding his unavailability due to the flu:
"I just need to say a few words here guys. I'm truly unable to perform tonight. Again.

"Me not being able to do what I'm supposed to do is really really frustrating and I feel that I'm letting you all down. Not just you, the fans, but the band as well.

"But we try to make the absolute best we can out of this situation.

"So its either cancel OR play for you guys anyway. We opt for playing. Its what we're here to do. So that's what we'll do. With your help it'll be awesome.

"I will see the doctor again tomorrow and will hopefully get a green light to perform in Philly. Fingers crossed.

"So a big humble thanks goes out to all of you for your support and understanding!!

"Let the mayhem commence Charlotte!!!"
- Jens
