Timo Kotipelto, the vocalist from Stratovarius also suffers from a flue infection. He posted a few days ago on the Stratovarius forum: Due to a recent bacterial infection my voice isn’t what it should be. The infection dried out my vocal chords, and I’m still struggling to recover. Although canceling the tour was discussed, we decided to not let you down but to play for all of you great people out there who have been with you through thick and thin and continue to support Stratovarius no matter what.
I want to thank all of you who have sung with me on the gigs, you guys keep me going on! I’ll keep you posted about my condition and everything directly related to me on <a href=”http://www.facebook.com/ officialkotipelto”>my facebook page</a>. I hope you’ve enjoyed the shows as much as we have and like our new album, Elysium. See you at the gig!
