It was news he had earlier shared on his verified Instagram account.
“But I’ve been resting and healing and even though the doctor tells me I shouldn’t play at all, you know I’m stubborn and I’ll beast through the pain every show for as many songs as I can,” he wrote in a statement posted.
Secondo il post, Black Sabbath drummer Tommy Clufetos would be subbing for Lee.
“We’ve all been waiting years for this moment and there’s no way I’m missing this!,” Lee wrote. “On with the show.”
