V6 also have gigs scheduled for 27th November supporting Accept at The Forum and 7th December with Magnum at Planet Rockstock. The situation regarding these gigs is addressed in the band’s statement which you can read in full below.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the departure of Luke from the band. He is unwell and will not be able to continue with us. It’s been five years, we have made two amazing albums with him and played countless shows, he always delivered and gave his all at the highest level. We all wish him well and hope he is back to full health very soon. It is a very sad time for us, he was always a pleasure to be around and we will miss him greatly.
“We are doing everything we can to move forwards and are now looking for a singer to join us. If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief biog and website/link to your music.
“The Accept support show, and Planet Rockstock will definitely go ahead with a guest singer – if we haven’t found a permanent replacement by then.
“We are looking into options for the show this Friday at Legends of Rock, but time is very short and unfortunately we may be forced to cancel. The organisers have been informed and have been very supportive in this difficult situation. More news on this a bit later.”
