Monster Magnet cancel North American tour dates due to illness

New Jersey rockers Monster Magnet have cancelled the final four shows of their first North American tour in ten years due to an illness with frontman Dave Wyndorf.

"Full on flu,” explained Wyndorf. “Voice-killer, gig-destroyer... I'm so sorry. I hate it more than anybody. We'll make it up, I swear."

"We are all totally bummed the rest of the tour is cancelled,” added guitarist Phil Caivano. “Dave is really sick. We were trying to go day to day, only for him to get worse. I'd like to thank everyone who came out and all of you who planned to. No one is more bummed then us. We will be back."

Monster Magnet were on the road in support of the band’s new album, “Last Patrol.”

The cancelled shows are as follows:

Dec 10 - Toronto, ON - Lee’s Palace
Dec 12 - Boston, MA - Sinclair
Dec 13 - West Chester, PA - The Note
Dec 14 - New York, NY - Bowery Ballroom
