There hasn’t been much to report about former Iron Maiden frontman Paul Di’Anno in recent years, aside from the fact that he’s been performing despite the retirement he hinted back in 2012. In the past year, Di’Anno has been performing in a wheelchair due to a knee injury and it may seem like the problem has extended drastically as he’s been hospitalized, forcing to cancel his Brazilian tour next month.
The news about Di’Anno’s condition was revealed via Facebook by the production company in Brazil in charge of his eight date tour scheduled in the country. The translation of the message reads as follows:
It is with great regret that we are obliged to inform all the indefinite postponement of the tour of Paul Dianno by Brazil in the next month of June. Paul is in the hospital and, today in the morning, we have been informed directly for him that his table of health at the moment is extremely delicate. Exams are being made to obtain the diagnosis I need, but there isn’t a term for that diagnosis, because the necessary treatment and their period of recovery.
We work with Paul in the past year and all I can say is that he was great with all the people involved in the tour. He became a friend to all and we are very sad with the news. We want to see him again on the road as soon as possible.
We are available to clarify issues related to the shows marked (where all their contractors and local partners have already been duly warned by us throughout the day today) and we ask for the understanding in the sense that we do not develop in relation to the state of health Paul. This is a private matter and such detailed breakdown it’s not up to us, but only to him.
Grateful for the understanding of all,

It is not clear if his hospitalization is related to his knee problems but whatever the case may be, we just hope he gets better soon.
