It was just about a week ago when I pointed out that the Finnish Rock band Santa Cruz had pulled out of the remaining dates on their US Tour. They were one of the many openers for Fozzy and also doing some headlining dates on the off times during this run. We did that HERE if you missed it and want to be properly up to speed.
Though there wasn’t any sort of full OFFICIAL PRESS STATEMENT made about the status of the tour and why it was cancelled on their Official Website or Facebook Page, it seemed as though the band members took to their personal Instagrams and posted that they had left the group; Here are the embedded posts from Johnny Cruz, Taz Cruz and Middy Cruz (Joonas Parkkonen, Mitja Toivonen and Tapani Fagerstrom respectively).
I'm very sorry to inform that I'm leaving Santa Cruz and so are Middy and Taz. We faced issues that we cannot solve even thou we tried everything that we could to make this tour and band happen. I can't stay in a situation anymore where I have to be scared if somebody does irreversible harm to themselves or somebody else. That's why I'm leaving. I never thought I'd be in this situation, but I have no more options to use. I'm sorry. Peace and Love ❤️ -Johnny
