Volbeat - Guitarist Sitting Out US Shows

Danish rock 'n' rollers Volbeat will be doing a string of US tour dates later this month without the company of guitarist Thomas Bredahl. The band issued the following update:

"To our U.S. fans: We'll be playing the first handful of our U.S. shows without Thomas [Bredahl] on guitar. Immigration is giving him a real hard time because of an incident concerning theft of a barstool back in the day. He wasn't exactly a juvenile delinquent or anything, but to Homeland Security it's all the same. We hope to have him on board shortly. Our guitar tech will stand in for the time being and we'll, of course, keep you updated."

Quick reminder: the new Volbeat album Beyond Hell/Above Heaven, in slated for release in Germany on September 10 and in most parts of Europe on September 13 via Vertigo/Universal.

LOL he stole a barstool => he's a criminal. anyway it's a shame, he's a good player and i love his vocals on The Garden's Tale(which i presume they won't be playing on this tour for this reason)
Sing me a song, you're a singer
Do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil.

Thomas didn't do the vocals for The Garden's Tale, he just does it when they play live. Those vocals were done by Johan Olsen, the lead singer of a danish rock band called Magtens Korridorer.

Haha stealing barstools is a typical Danish teenage thing to do...getting caught is just bad luck
