Dear guitar friends and music lovers,

I am very sad to have to tell you that I will not be able to play the concert in Seoul on the 22nd of October. Yesterday I fell and hurt my wrist. When I arrived to Seoul I went directly to a clinic and the X-Ray showed that I have two linear fractures in my radius and scaphoid, both in my left wrist. I tried playing the guitar, but I simply cannot hold the strings down. I would have played with pain, if it were possible, but unfortunately, I find that my fingers will not do it. The good news is that this injury is not threatening and I will be able to play again after some time of immobilisation.

I am devastated, but have no alternative other than to cancel the concert. I have been very lucky with injuries in my life and this is the first time I have had to cancel a concert. You can imagine how sad I feel. My only relief is the hope of coming back to Seoul to play for all of you very soon.

Please, accept my apologies for all the inconveniences that many of you will have incurred. I have always enjoyed my visits to Korea. I am already looking forward to the day when I can come back to Seoul and make it up to all of you.

Kind regards to everyone,

David Russell.
