Shit hits their plans

Shitdisco's UK tour has been axed following Joel falling ill. Their statement explains further:

Joel became seriously ill in Aberdeen on Monday, went to hospital and was kept in overnight for tests. Aberdeen was cancelled. Joel discharged himself in the morning and travelled down with his bandmates to Newcastle where his condition deteriorated and had to go back to hospital. He's now stable but is in no state to play, doctors plan to run more tests in the next few days as they're still not actually sure what is wrong with him. Unfortunately then Shitdisco have had to pull the rest of the UK dates, Hull on 25th, London Kings College 26th and Manchester 27th. Joel and the band hope to be 'OK' for their European tour which starts early May.

We're always amazed when we hear people have discharged themselves from hospital - it's the NHS, for god's sake, they're not exactly known for keeping people in their beds unless there's some bloody good reason.
