Sydney veterans Frenzal Rhomb have been forced to postpone shows this weekend as guitarist Lindsay McDougall is set to undergo emergency eye surgery today.

Though he took part in the band's performance in Miranda last night, McDougall has been advised to attend surgery immediately to avoid permanent damage to his sight. 

The news means the band's shows scheduled for tonight in Ulladulla, tomorrow in Windsor and on Sunday in Katoomba have been called off. 

New dates will be announced as soon as possible and tickets already purchased will be honoured at the rescheduled shows.
