The European leg of US alternative metallers Gwar's Return Of The World Maggot tour, scheduled to kick off in January 2012 has been cancelled after several promoters pulled the plug on shows, citing poor ticket sales.

Gwar spokesman Dave Brockie commented on the tour's cancellation: "Several of the promoters were alarmed by the low ticket sales, and they decided to start pulling the plug on shows. It got to the point where we had lost so many shows that we simply could not afford to do the tour."

Brockie continued: "We are super disappointed that this happened, and we apologize to all of our European fans for cancelling the tour. We did everything we could possibly do to save it, but it just didn't work out. The tickets are fully refundable so make sure you get your money back!"

Shame I guess, would have been cool to see these in a venue instead of at a festival.

I guess europeans have an aversion to being bathed in blood, semen, and gore.

This really fucking sucks. Been wanting to see them for years but always seemed to miss them. I was hoping to catch my first GWAR show in Bristol this time around. I was so looking forward to be covered in blood, semen and various chunks of gore.
