22-Pistepirkko cancel tourdates due to illness

22-Pistepirkko have been forced to cancel all shows in Winter/Spring 2012 due to ongoing illness.  Sadly, the trio's drummer and singer Espe Haverinen suffers from painful problems with hip joint and back. While being in therapy recently, Espe met with a specialist doctor who determined it was imperative that he needs to be hospitalized, gets a surgery and takes the next months off to recover.

22-pistepirkko are devastated to cancel their shows, but Espe's condition leaves them with no alternative. Plans to reschedule these cancelled tour dates are being investigated; more information will be provided when available.
