John 5 will no longer be a part of Yngwie Malmsteen's coming U.S. tour. John 5 cites both "unforeseen circumstances" and "an abundance of caution" for the decision, and promises he'll be back o the road when he feels it's safer.
"Due to unforeseen circumstances and out of an abundance of caution I am sad to announce that I will no longer be joining Yngwie on the upcoming US tour.
"The health concerns for artists and their crew that come with traveling extensively from city to city during this time have meant that myself and my team feel this is the best course of action to keep everybody on my tour team safe and well.
"I am certain that these Yngwie shows will be amazing, as they always are. I'm sorry I won't be there to share my new music with you all. I'll be back out on the road as soon as is safe and possible."
