Michael Schenker, Uli Jon Roth and Leslie West Postpone Tour

Michael Schenker, Uli Jon Roth and Leslie West have postponed their 3 Guitar Heroes tour due to insurmountable travel issues. The outing was scheduled to begin in Norfolk, CT on October 6. A statement from the trio reads, “When faced with securing a viable path for West’s travel while still confined to a wheelchair, the search for a vehicle went on for months, and it has been called off. Last week, West was fitted with a prosthetic leg, but it will take months before he is able to live a normal life with the appendage, and there is no way to tour at this time without the security of the wheelchair he has been confined to post-amputation.” Part of the Mountain leader’s leg was recently amputated due to complications from diabetes.
