Dark Tranquillity - European Tour Cancelled


In what will probably be disappointing to many fans, Dark Tranquillity has just confirmed the cancellation of their upcoming European tour dubbed Metal Attack Over Europe that was scheduled to start next week.

Official statement from the band: "It is with great frustration that we have to announce the cancellation of our participation in the planned European tour Metal Attack Over Europe.

The reasons are several. The main tour promoter has failed in making the necessary practical and logistical arrangements needed for the tour to happen. Due to the lack of reliable information and substandard promotion, ticket sales have been surprisingly low. We can't just embark on a one-month, five-band trek risking to be met by closed venues or not being 100% sure that the necessary arrangements for the shows even to happen are in place. The fact that Warbringer had to cancel didn't help the situation.

We understand that many people will be disappointed, and so are we. Rest assured that our booking agent has been doing his outmost to save the tour and try to sort things out, but the sad reality is that we're left with no choice but to cancel. We are truly sorry about this situation."

At least the tour was canceled before it started and people probably will have their money back, if it was here...

not all the time. The tour would also have been part of the two day festival in The Netherlands called Eindhoven Metal Meeting

Not a big loss compared to what happened in the festival (Metal Open Air) here in Brazil, 30 bands canceled their shows one day before, (or some while the festival was going on) that sucked big time

I doubt that they can pull another Character, but I certainly expect something better than their last one, more creative at least.

I thought you showed up here to say this wasn't a European tour anyway as it didn't include Portugal

BAHAHAHA ! Seriopusly ? How can a tour promoter for a band like DT fail so badly !? Nobody checked on him before ? The fact he was sleeping on his desk face first didn't raise any suspicions ?
