TURISAS ohne Gitarrist

Vor neun Monaten war Gitarrist Georg Laakso in einen Autounfall verwickelt und dabei schwer verletzt. Nun muss der Finne aus gesundheitlichen Gründen endgültig seinen unfreiwilligen Ausstieg aus der Band bekannt geben: „I have been diagnosed with spinal cord injury which has an effect on all the functions in my body. In practice it means that nothing from my chest and below is working properly or at all, and I am now tied to a wheelchair — most likely for the rest of my life. Unfortunately my fingers are not working either and it is very unlikely that I will be able to play the guitar — or any instrument for that matter — ever again. To avoid sounding too gloomy I would like to point out that considering the circumstances I should have been dead many times already. Thanks to hard rehabilitation, zest for life and persistency I have already made some progress and I am slowly re-learning the basics of life. I have a hard battle of my own ahead of myself, but battles are meant to be won.” Weiterhin bedankt sich der Musiker für die große Anteilnahme aller: „I would like to thank all of you for the support you have given me during these hard months. All the letters, cards and greetings have gladdened my heart enourmously. A big thank you to every one of you! I would have wanted to inform you much sooner, but my constitution and the unclarity in things have made it impossible for me to give any kind of a reasonable statement earlier than now. I know that also this is still pretty vague, but I am hoping to be able to give you more information when things first come clear to myself. There is no such thing as giving up!”

TURISAS selbst wollen bis auf weiteres keinen Ersatzmann engagieren und werden, wie auch in den letzten Monaten schon, die anstehenden Shows mit nur einem Gitarristen angehen. In diesen Tagen spielen TURISAS einige Festivals, auch in Deutschland:
Jul. 14 – Dong Open Air – Neukirchen-Vluyn, GER
Jul. 15 – Bloodstock Open Air – Derbyshire, UK
Aug. 11 – Party San Open Air – Bad Berka, GER
