Unfortunately Richard Fortus had a bit of a motorcycle accident recently and, will not be able to make this leg of the tour. We wish him a speedy recovery and he will definitely be ‘back on deck’ for the KISS KRUISE.

I was involved in a motorcycle accident recently and as a result, I not be able to make the tour. The doctors say I will make a full recovery.  I’m devastated that I will not be able to play to the Australian and New Zealand fans, who have been so supportive and loyal. Thank to everyone for their well-wishes.” – Richard Fortus

Amazing rock player extraordinaire from the Baby Animals, Dave Leslie, will jump in and play these dates. Dave is busy learning the tunes and can’t wait to get out there and play with The Daisies.
