jimk29 Posted January 24 Report Share Posted January 24 Mylo has been forced to cancel his appearances at Big Day Out after he contracted a virus over Christmas that has led to his becoming deaf in one ear, with a partial loss of hearing in the other. He is now stranded in South Africa where he was due to play a show.According to a statement, Mylo "contracted a virus over the New Year which resulted in partial hearing loss in one ear. Unfortunately the situation has since worsened and he has lost hearing in one ear completely, and has only partial hearing in his other ear. He was hoping that a couple of days rest would help regain his hearing. However, since his arrival in Cape Town for a show and receiving specialist medical treatment, unfortunately no progress has been made."The statement continued: "As a result of this, he is grounded in Cape Town and unable to move at the moment. As you can probably imagine it is impossible for him to perform right now and therefore we regretfully have to cancel the Big Day Out shows."He's not the first to make a last minute exit from the Australian touring festival. As previously reported, AFI have pulled out, although Jack White, who was recently forced to cancel White Stripes tour dates in Japan is expected to recover in time to take part in Big Day Out as scheduled.
