George Lynch has been forced to cancel his appearance with DOKKEN at this weekend’s M3 Rock Festival in Columbia, Maryland.
The guitarist explained in a statement: “Due to my continued pneumonia, I will regrettably have to cancel my upcoming my appearance this Friday at the Dallas Guitar Show as well as the M3show with DOKKEN and will also have to reschedule the upcoming LYNCH MOB shows in Chicago and Kansas City. Thank you for your understanding.”
Lynch‘s most recent appearance with DOKKEN took place last September when he joined Don Dokken (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mick Brown (drums, backing vocals) and Chris McCarvill (bass, backing vocals) on stage at the Grand RockTember VI festival at Grand Casino Hinckley Amphitheater in Hinckley, Minnesota to perform set of the band’s classic songs.
DOKKEN‘s classic lineup — including Lynch and bassist/vocalist Jeff Pilson — reunited for a short Japanese tour in the fall of 2016. The trek marked the first time in 21 years the four musicians had hit the road together.
A DOKKEN concert DVD focusing on the band’s reunion tour, “Return To The East Live (2016)”, was made available last year.
