PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t have much to add to the mix here but just wanted to be sure to share the most recent update on Peter’s incident from his media side of the fence since I know a lot of our readers are longtime fans and many were even hitting some of the residency dates. As far as those shows that were supposed to take place are concerned, when they get rescheduled you can count on my listing them on our Events Calendar as I did with the shows that took place. I am glad to find Peter getting the excellent prognosis and I am sure that his most ardent fans will be enjoying him in concert sooner than later. Chime in below if you’d care to add some thoughts, it’s always nice to hear what the readers have to say. See you next time around.
