HIM Cancel North American Tour Due To Illness - Details Available!

Finnish Rockers HIM have been forced to cancel their North American tour due to illness, as frontman Ville Valo has been ordered to rest.

The band just released their eigth studio album 'Tears on Tape', and were scheduled to start the North American trek Friday night (May 3) in Los Angeles, but the first clue that there was something going on surfaced when on Thursday (May 2) at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards ceremony, Valo was noticeably not on hand to accept the band’s Most Dedicated Fans honor.

A statement on their tour cancellation follows:

"HIM's North American tour (which was due to kick off in Los Angeles on May 3rd at the House Of Blues) has been cancelled due to unforeseen medical circumstances. HIM's lead vocalist Ville Valo has been diagnosed with severe asthma with presumptive pneumonia. Tickets for all dates will be refunded at the point of purchase. HIM will be back later this summer as part of the Rock Allegiance tour."
