Management: GEORGE LYNCH Was 'Dehydrated', Will Perform At DALLAS GUITAR FESTIVAL

George Lynch's (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB) management has released a statement regarding the guitarist's current condition after he was reportedly rushed to hospital last night as a result of taking ill 30 minutes into his band's performance at the Empire Ballroom. The statement from Kevin Lee of Novi Entertainment reads as follows:

"First, we want to thank everyone for their concern. George is resting and will be performing at the Dallas guitar show [The Dallas International Guitar Festival] as scheduled on Sunday [April 23]. George apperently was dehydrated after a long drive through the desert then performing and his body just 'shut down.' He was examined at a Las Vegas hospital, treated and released. Thanks again to everyone for your concern!"

The GEORGE LYNCH GROUP recently performed a marathon 26 shows in 30 days, including taking part in a much-talked-about skit on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno".

Joining Lynch in his current touring band are lead vocalist Andrew Freeman, drummer Vinny Appice (BLACK SABBATH, DIO) and bassist Marten Andersson (LIZZY BORDEN, STARWOOD).
