Jerry Lee Lewis News
Wednesday, 14. July 2010 - 17:44


Dear Fans,
Last night the management of Jerry Lee Lewis and his daughter Phoebe Lewis has informed us that Jerry is unable to make his European Summertour starting in Belgium Saturday july 17 and finishing in Finland on august 1st.

Jerry is suffering from SHINGLES (acute vesicular inflammation), very painfull and it causes also problems with his heart.
Jerry had a 3 hours surgery yesterday in the Hospital in Memphis and his docters have advised him NOT to do the tour at this moment.They have told him that everything will be fine again in one month.

I also spoke to Jerry personal last night, he was very depressed and sad that he had to cancel his summertour.Please understand that Jerry Lee Lewis has not been ill during the last FIVE years.

I spoke to the Agent Steven Green and to Jerry’s manager Phoebe Lewis and both advised me to postphone the tour to NOVEMBER 2010,just a couple of months later.

Important reason to do it NOVEMBER is also that JERRY LEE LEWIS brandnew CD and DVD MEAN OLD MAN will be released WORLDWIDE in the FIRST week of september.

So to do the concerts in november that will give Jerry Lee Lewis a HUGHES publicity with the new album and the promoters enough time to reschedule the venue.
