Well, the good news is that we're back on the road with Helloween. And Jörg Michael is back in his drum chair after his brush with death. The bad news is that Timo Kotipelto caught some sort of bacterial infection. We suspect it was something from the backstage food in December, but we don't know. Two of the other people on the tour had the same thing: a very bad dysentery-like stomach infection with vomiting and diarrhea, dehydration, also eventually had to go to hospital, etc.

Timo's infection is stubborn and in addition to ruining his Christmas break, it has dried out his vocal cords. In his own words, he can't sing a note at the moment. We are currently in France and so far we had to cancel playing in Paris and Lyon.

We are of course very sorry about this, and nobody is more heartbroken or frustrated than Timo himself. Apart from heeding the advice from doctors we are in touch with, the only thing we can do at the moment is to hope Timo gets better. We will ride the 1000 km to Bilbao tonight and hopefully we will all get some sleep on the nice smooth French motorways.

Here is a short video about the Paris cancellation and some words from Jörg. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=rBqq3o0_fhc

Crying or Very sad How awful and especially on the eve of the release of a Masterpiece like Elysium. But you know what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. And Stratovarius and Timo will be back FULL FUCKING FORCE!

Man it seems somebody did a voodu for the band, first was Jörg & now is TK?
Perhaps influenced by "jealous people" you know!? Rolling Eyes

WTF

I know some of you are skeptical, but the band need to do something to protect themselves from negative influences as praying or blessing Rolling Eyes

Get well soon Timo, I am sending my best wishes for you!

You know how much I Love You Wink

Sad Thanks for the info Jens. I'm having an extremely good time with the awesome Elysium and I hope to see you in Madrid again, just like last year. Let's hope TK gets better soon. You have today, the whole day to rest and try to get better. Cmon Timo!

It's good to hear that Jorg is doing better and he's back behind the kit however it sucks that Timo is not feeling well.

I will be hoping and praying for your recovery Timo, please get well soon.

Very true, I mean if TK can't sing I would think it would make sense to have a temporary replacement.
