Aslan’s Christy Dignam remains in hospital. however, he’s very much on the mend as his latest health update suggests.
It comes as the band was forced to cancel their upcoming show in Dublin’s 3Arena for their 40th anniversary. Christy has been battling a rare blood disorder, amyloidosis, since 2013, and this is one of those occasions when his health has plummeted.
Naturally, fans were devastated to learn that the show had been canceled, and equally concerned about the singer too. Christy’s band manager has assured fans that although his health had declined, he’s doing a lot better now.
“He’s resting and with this new treatment now, there’s loads of different bits they have to monitor him with. He’s in good form, good spirits,” said manager Denise.
Continuing on, she added that the band is keen to make things up to their fans and hit the stage again.
“Aslan are dying to get back out there again. Look, it happened but it was best that it happened that week and it wasn’t something that happened when we were in the 3Arena.”
For now however, Christy has some more rest that he needs to get before he’s able to get back performing.
“We don’t know (when Christy will be out of hospital). Obviously, the important part is to keep getting him checked”
“He’s on the right road. It’s day by day. It always has been.
“We’re just looking at suitable dates that will work and will tie into everything. When it’s confirmed, we will announce it and let people know.”
