German power metallers Gamma Ray are sad to announce that guitarist and keyboardist Henjo Richter will take no part in their upcoming shows. The band is scheduled to play in the Sweden Rock Cruise this month and also take part in the Masters Of Rock Festival later next month.

The band posted the following on their Facebook page: "Unfortunately we are forced to deliver the bad news that Henjo Richter had a bike accident and broke three ribs and the collarbone, so he will not be able to play on the cruise. Since we couldn't find a replacement and did not want to cancel the show and leave our fans disappointed, we have decided to play the show nevertheless and give our longtime live keyboarder Mr. Corvin Bahn (Crystal Breed) some extra-space and a distortion pedal for his organ-sounds. So if you're on the boat and around 1:45 am hear something that sounds like Deep Purple playing Gamma Ray songs, it's us. Hope you'll enjoy this 'Show beyond the ordinary'."
