H2O was due to kick off its European tour this Friday with a concert at BrakRock. Unfortunately, this will not be the case, as Rusty Pistachio, the band’s guitarist and founding member, is unable to make the tour for health problems.
The guitarist announced the news via his social networks :
“Hey everyone , regretfully won’t be able to do the August Euro run due to health issues, more specifically after suffering through the west coast GB run with kidney stones that had me pissing blood for a week , I returned home to find out I now have Covid . Not just a 1 -2 punch , but a total knock out. Under Dr’s orders I’m grounded until I’m healthy enough to start the blood panel work she needs to diagnose my kidney issues.
I haven’t missed an H20 tour since we started in 1994 so this really hurts in more ways than one. We’ve tried to find someone to cover for me but as it stands no one is available. ( Matt tested positive for Covid as well) This Truly Sucks …
My apologies to all of you that bought tickets and made travel plans to see us, you are genuinely appreciated and I hope one day to Thank You all in person for your support 🙏🏼 To the promoters booking agents tour managers , my brothers in H20 , I’m sorry to let you down, I wish I had the strength to make this happen ;
universe once again reminding me that I’m only human 🙏🏼 ❤️”
Of course, we wish Rusty Pistachio all the best for his recovery, and look forward to seeing H2O again soon.
