Stone Sour Cancel Tour After Drummer Suffers Minor Stroke

Stone Sour

Stone Sour have ran into a setback as the band was forced to cancel the rest of their U.S. tour dates due to drummer Roy Mayorga (second from left) suffering a minor stroke.  Fortunately, Mayorga is expected to make a full recovery soon.

Mayorga had the stroke after the band’s Des Moines show last week.  Stone Sour released the following statement:

“It is with regret that we have decided to cancel the remaining dates on our current headline tour.  Our friend and drummer, Roy Mayorga suffered a minor stroke a couple of nights ago after our show in Des Moines.  He’s doing great and is expected to make a 100% recovery.    We apologize to all the fans and look forward to getting back out on the road with Roy in the coming months.”

Corey Taylor posted a thank you message to fans on his Twitter account.

“Thank you so much, everyone. I know Roy appreciates all your love and thoughts. I do as well. We will keep you all posted about everything.”

Stone Sour’s Shawn Economaki pulled out of the current tour last month due to undisclosed “personal issues”, forcing the group to play with a replacement bassist.
