The Show Must Go On…

Suede member health related news to update you on from SuedeHQ…

“Simon Gilbert has contracted tuberculosis, a condition that is only treatable with a prolonged period of antibiotics and rest.

Because of this he is unlikely to be able to perform with Suede at the forthcoming shows in Copenhagen and Barcelona. However, both Simon and the band feel that these shows must go on and thus the group will be rehearsing with long-term friend of the band Justin Welch to make sure that this can happen. 

Simon wants everyone to know that he is receiving great care and that he is sure that his recovery will be as speedy as possible.”


I hope you can join me in wishing Simon a speedy and safe recovery and those going to the shows in Copenhagen and Barcelona please make sure you give extra support to stand-in drummer Justin!

Any further news on this issue I will be sure to update this article and let you know.

Simon x
