I wish to apologize to all of my followers who've been so loyal through the years, my band, my crew and to Judas Priest for letting you all down. However, I promise the tour with Judas Priest will probably be accomplished. It's being rescheduled proper now to begin in September. Again, I apologize to everybody."
