Black Label Society’s Zakk Wylde Hospitalized, Cancels Two Shows
Black Label Society frontman Zakk Wylde was admitted to a Nebraska hospital yesterday afternoon. Later, the guitarist was diagnosed with a blood clotting condition in his leg. That night's show in Omaha, Neb. went on without Black Label Society, so openers Clutch, Children of Bodom and 2Cents took to the 1,500 audience in attendance.
Due to Wylde's health issues, tonight's show at the 7 Flags Event Center in Clive, Iowa has also been canceled. Both shows are in the process of being rescheduled, and fans can get a refund as well. Black Label Society are currently set to play the Oct. 2 show in Milwaukee.
This is not the first time Wylde has suffered from blood clotting. Last August, he was hospitalized for the same condition, forcing the band to drop off the Pedal to the Metal Tour.
