David Garrett has cancelled current engagements due to ‘an acute herniated disc’.

He’s in pain. We wish him better.

David tweets: “Dear Friends, I’m so incredibly sorry that I can’t play these concerts in , I’ll do everything to guarantee a speedy recovery – so I hopefully can visit & see you guys on tour soon! I can’t wait! 🙁 Love you guys, David.”

So sweet of him to give our site a hashtag.

    Love the headline! Still waiting for “Armless Pianist in a Topless Bar”.

  • Ben says:

    What piece was he playing in that photo? I don’t mind having an orgasm while listening to the violin.

  • Pianofortissimo says:

    Alternative headline: “Slipped disk gives violinist pain in the neck.”

    Or is it in the back?
