Adam explains the Cancellation

Blabbermouth posted an excerpt from an interview Adam did on 99.5 KISS today, where he explains the reason for cancelling the San Antonio show.  As we expected it’s due to Maynard’s illnes:

“Oh, I’m really sorry,” Jones said. “It’s horrible, you know. Our singer got sick… Maynard is sick and it’s very unfortunate ’cause, you know, when I get sick or Danny [Carey] or Justin [Chancellor] get sick, we can still go on with the show, but Maynard‘s got fever, he’s coughing up stuff, he’s hoarse and he doesn’t want everyone to think he sucks by going out and trying anyway. But you know, he needs to just get over it, rest, you know, and hopefully we can continue. So you just need to hold on to your tickets and we’ll try to swing back around on this tour or on the next tour… It’ll be good for that. We’re really sorry about this, but it happens. You know, you’re traveling and overnighting to different places and climate changes and different pollens and different infected people that are probably getting him sick and, you know.”

Apparently the whole interview can be heard here.

That site uses a crappy stream, so I’ve uploaded the interview (2:30, 598KB) here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/gmjkbg

Not really.
He just mentioned that they’d try and catch up on that date later on, maybe on another tour.
Also said how they did a lot more between song jams/improvs to give Maynard’s voice more time to recover at their last show.

I was in town for the gig, but since it was canceled, my girlfriend, brother and I hit the riverwalk like at 10:30 pm. We ran into Adam and a bunch of people. When I called him, he came over, apologied and shook our hands. A real nice guy.
