Fans looking forward to seeing Uli Jon Roth, Leslie West, and Michael Schenker sharing the stage this fall will have to wait. A press release has confirmed the tour has been postponed due to travel issues. West, who recently had the lower half of his right leg amputated, is confined to a wheelchair, and has not been able to find a vehicle that would allow him to travel comfortably. Here is the official press release: Michael Schenker, Uli Jon Roth and Leslie West have been forced to postpone the 3 Guitar Heroes tour that was set to commence on October 6 in Norfolk, CT, due to insurmountable travel issues. When faced with securing a viable path for Wests travel while still confined to a wheelchair, the search for a vehicle went on for months, and it has been called off. Last week, West was fitted with a prosthetic leg, but it will take months before he is able to live a normal life with the appendage, and there is no way to tour at this time without the security of the wheelchair he has been confined to post-amputation. Plans are moving forward to explore restaging this tour in the New Year. Hopefully we will see this tour be rescheduled next year. All of us at UG wish Leslie the best.
