The Alarm

with Jay Aston's Gene Loves Jezebel , Belouis Some

Unfortunately, The Alarm’s upcoming U.S. tour Live Today, Love Tomorrow which was set to begin on May 1st though to July 7th with support from Jay Aston’s Gene Loves Jezebel and Belouis Some has been postponed. (The Alarm’s performance at Pasadena, CA’s Cruel World Festival on May 11th will also be affected).

Hello Everyone I have no doubt that the following news will come as a complete shock to you in the same way that it has also come as a bolt out of the blue to me and my family. On Sunday morning, I awoke with a large swollen gland on the left side of my neck. I saw Dr. Heartin at the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre at 10 am on Monday, and he immediately arranged for an emergency biopsy and CT Scan. The early results have determined that my Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) has undergone a transformation into a High Grade Lymphoma. I am awaiting to have both a PET and Heart Scan and also consultations with the team at the Christie Institute in Manchester before confirming the exact specifics of my new treatment regime with the amazing Dr. Heartin and the brilliant team at The North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre.

Once the exact specifics of the biopsy and the treatment plans have been determined, I will write again with a plan for recovery and how I’m going to make it through what I know will be the most challenging time of my life. Unfortunately, due to this distressing news, I can no longer travel to the USA for the Live Today Love Tomorrow Tour, which was due to commence on May 1st. I am still reeling from the consequences of this new and completely unforeseen diagnosis and doing my best to process what is happening. I’m grateful for the love and understanding of everyone affected by the tour postponement and hoping and praying with all that I have, that this is just a pause in the story of my life, and that normal service will be able to resume soon. Cancer has been chasing me for 29 years now, and in all that time, I have managed to outrun the disease and stay alive. My focus and resolve remain the same, and I’m determined to keep running even harder to stay one step ahead and resume my life as a husband, father, and musician as soon as possible. Thanks for all your understanding, and I will endeavour to keep you updated as soon as I know what the doctors have in store for me and the life steps I will have to take to get back on the front foot.

Stay Alive, Mike Peters

About The Alarm

Described by U2‟s Bono as “The second greatest rock and roll band in the world”, The Alarm was formed in Wales and with the release of 1981’s debut single ‘Unsafe Building’, featured a daring mix of amped-up acoustic guitars, harmonica and passionate Mike Peters‟ vocals likened by early reviewers as “Bob Dylan meets The Clash”. This is the sound of The Alarm that has been heard around the world ever since, with 17 Top 50 UK singles, a host of successful albums and over 6 million album sales worldwide.

Following an initial breakthrough in the USA with 1983’s ‘The Stand‟ (that recently triggered over 3 million Spotify hits after featuring in the Netflix‟ TV series „13 Reasons Why‟), alongside the evergreen ‘Sixty Eight Guns’ that entered into the UK chart soon after, The Alarm headlined their own ‘Spirit of ’86 Concert’ before 26,000 fans in Los Angeles, that was beamed around the world via MTV’s first ever live global satellite broadcast.

In the summer of 1991, the demands of the road were at the heart of a very public swan song for the original members at London’s Brixton Academy, before the current line up re-emerged causing worldwide controversy in 2004...
