Mastodon have had to cancel their European tour after guitarist Bill Kelliher came down with a bad case of Pancreatitis.

A statement from the band reads, “Mastodon regrets to inform their fans that their upcoming Summer tour of Europe, originally set to begin June 5 in Germany and ending July 3 in Finland, has been cancelled. Guitarist Bill Kelliher, who has been diagnosed with Pancreatitis, has been advised by doctors to continue further medical treatment. Bill's medical team is optimistic and expects a full recovery in the weeks ahead as the band looks forward to being part of BlackDiamondSkye, also featuring Alice In Chains and Deftones, and slated to begin Sep. 16 in Chicago”.

Kelliher is a founding member of the band. Mastodon formed in Atlanta in 1999.
