Quiet Riot have canceled their slot in the socially-distant concert to be held at the Magic Springs Theme and Water Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas, due to “serious health concerns.”
No further details have been revealed as to the specific health concerns involved, though it is known that the band’s drummer, Frankie Banali, who was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer, recently admitted himself into the emergency room to obtain treatment.
“I have an infection that needs to be dealt with along with several procedures that need to be addressed,” Banali shared on Facebook. “Hopefully this ‘Disneyland’ visit will not be too long and I can return home to make my green tea. do my flower arrangements, work on my art and get into my usual home quarentine [sic] trouble.. My sincere thanks to everyone for their love, well wishes, prayers and concern! I know you all rock.. but you already knew that!”
In the post announcing the update, the band also shared that Molly Hatchet and Blackfoot have not backed out of the concert and will perform at the venue on the previously scheduled date of July 4th.
