Very bad news from the official page:
"6/15/2001 - We, the members of Bad Religion, are very sorry to report that we must postpone the dates of our upcoming European performances. Our drummer, Bobby Schayer has experienced a most unfortunate career-ending injury that has left us stunned and greatly saddened. His doctor tells us that he has lost a very significant amount of motion in his shoulder and he has trouble raising his arm above the level of his chest without excruciating pain. He cannot hit the cymbals, nor perform drum rolls with any degree of intensity, in short, his drum career is over. Bad Religion has lost one of the truly great punk drummers of all time. We are busy auditioning and rehearsing for our new album. It will be released in October and at that time we will return to Europe to make-up for the postponed shows that we had to suddenly, and unexpectedly abandon. Thanks to all the fans and promoters who will bear with us through this most unfortunate time. We promise that we won't let you down.
Greg Graffin, Jay Bentley, Greg Hetson, Brian Baker, and Bobby Schayer"
(I had read on www.tamito.com in German the official announcement of the cancellation of the whole European tour, but it could have been just a sick joke, so I waited for confirmation from the band -Roger.) (Thanks to Zachary Podolinsky.)
