Avenged Sevenfold pull out of Reading Festival last minute

Avenged Sevenfold have been forced to drop out of their appearance at the Reading Festival later today due to frontman, M. Shadows, suffering from vocal problems. 

Here is the statement they have made taken from their myspace page:

"We're very sorry to tell you that Avenged Sevenfold will not be performing at Reading today, August 24.  As many of you know, the band had to shorten their set at Leeds Friday due to vocal strain. Since then, Matt's doctors in the United Kingdom and Los Angeles have both advised him that he must rest his voice and cannot perform. 

Thankfully there are no long term problems and with proper rest, Matt will return to the road shortly. The band toured all summer with Iron Maiden throughout Europe and the UK. They returned home August 1, but because they wanted to play Reading and Leeds very much, they returned this week for the festival.  They were blown away by the number of fans who came to see them play at Leeds. The band is still in England now and is extremely disappointed that they can't play a show they have been looking forward to for a long time.

A7X will return to the United Kingdom at the beginning of 09.

Matt will post a personal message shortly but we wanted to get you the news immediately"
