The Blackout has had to pull out of playing the Teenage Cancer Trust show at the Royal Albert Hall. Bullet For My Valentine and Fightstar are the other bands confirmed to play the gig on the 28th of March. This comes from the band who say that bass player Rhys Lewis is ill after filming a video in California.

The band released the following statement:

“While in LA shooting our upcoming music video's Rhys became ill and was admitted to Hospital. Rhys is currently still in LA and his parents and girlfriend have flown out to be with him.

We are sorry to disappoint our fans however I'm sure you all understand and we'll update you on Rhys situation as we get more info.

Rhys has asked us to play the Merthyr and Japanese shows with a friend of ours filling Rhys's place until he's well enough to take his position as best in the bizz.

I know Rhys, his family and the rest of us would be be super happy if you could leave him some nice messages showing that you love him as much as we do and wish him a speedy recovery

The Blackout”
