After the sad news that former The Quireboys guitarist and The Wildhearts frontman Ginger Wildheart attempted suicide while detained in an Ireland jail for allegedly getting into an altercation with a fan at one of his shows, the singer/guitarist is now under around the clock hospital care due to his mental health issues.
The following is an excerpt from an article from Team Rock:
“His management team have issued a statement saying that Ginger is currently receiving around the clock care and, as a result, his upcoming shows at Manchester’s Dancehouse on August 18 and London’s Union Chapel on August 19 have been postponed.
The statement reads: “It is with regret that due to serious ongoing issues with Ginger Wildheart‘s mental health, we will be unable to fulfil any scheduled live appearances in the very near future.
“Ginger is currently hospitalised and receiving around the clock care and is in the safest possible place. We ask that you please respect the privacy of Ginger and his family and friends at this difficult time.
“Thank you for your continued love and support, it is very much appreciated.”
