Bands cancel their respective dates
Arch Enemy have cancelled their North American tour which was due to start next month. In a statement on their Facebook page, the band said:
“We were looking forward to seeing everyone again this fall and to share our stage with Goatwhore and Uncured, but we have been forced to cancel this run due to reasons beyond our control. It’s very unfortunate timing, but we cannot wait to come back and rock U.S. soil again next year and see all your faces! Thank you for understanding and, as always, for your support of Arch Enemy! Ticket and VIP refunds are available at point of purchase.”
Oddly, the Facebook post has since been deleted.
Meanwhile, Sons of Apollo have also cancelled their summer festival dates due to “unforeseen circumstances”. On their Facebook the band posted:
“Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, Sons Of Apollo regretfully has had to cancel all remaining Summer Festival appearances at Wacken Open Air and Prog In Park II.
We sincerely apologize to all of the fans that were looking forward to these appearances.
