In a statement, lead singer Klaus Meine said he has been unable to recovery from his sickness which cause the band to cancel their Melbourne support act with Def Leppard.
“Dear Australian Fans, believe me I have tried everything to be up on Stage tonight in Sydney … I haven‘t said a word in the last 36 Hours to rest my pipes but unfortunately my voice is not back to the power it needs to sing my heart out for you tonight. You deserve nothing less than the best Performance and I hope we have a chance to come back, to finally ‘Rock you Like a Hurricane’. Thank you for all the ‘get well soon’ messages. Thank you, Def Leppard, for your amazing support on this Tour. Love Klaus.”
A planned meet and greet session will still go ahead, only without Klaus.
