Butch Vig's health problems continue...

[a][/a] drummer BUTCH VIG has pulled out of a number of dates on the band’s current tour due to illness.

The star, who recently couldn’t perform on a European tour after contracting Hepatitis A which left him unable to walk and turned his skin and eyes yellow, is to miss shows in North America.

This time, Vig is suffering from an infection in his inner ear which causes painful sensitivity to sound, according to the band’s official website. He will be replaced by Matt Chamberlain.

The group are currently finishing a US tour, and will play shows in Europe throughout June and July.
