Bad news come from Twisted Sister. The 80s metal band frontman Dee Snider has released a confirmation that he will undergo emergency throat surgery on Friday to remove a polyp near his vocal chords.
It is reported that following a Jan. 20 concert in Los Angeles, during which Dee's voice gave out, he then went to throat specialist Dr. Gwen S. Korovin. And after a series of tests, the doctor discovered a benign growth near Dee's voice box.
And thus, the diagnosis has unfortunately prompted Twisted Sister to cancel performance at the Atarfe Vega Festival in Grenada, Spain March 10 and 11. An April 29 show set for Las Vegas' Silverton Casino is still on as of press time.
"I hate canceling shows and disappointing fans for any reason, but I have been advised that this surgery should not wait," Dee admitted while adding "My VH1 and House of Hair shows will be taped, but some live performance events will have to be rescheduled."
