Taake’s North American Spring Tour Is Cancelled

It was only a few weeks ago that we helped share the news about the Springtime North American tour by Black Metal’s own Taake. The scoop was HERE in case you want to reference it, but now onto the sad news – due to venues being threatened by members representing the Antifa group, this entire tour is now cancelled. It began with the NYC show which I was interested in seeing but more on that later. Below is the original poster and the dates that are now in the proverbial crapper.

This Just In: AC/DC To Reschedule Upcoming US Tour Dates

Some bad news from the AC/DC Camp as singer Brian Johnson has been ordered by doctors to hold off on the remaining tour dates on their currently in progress “Rock Or Bust” tour or risk complete injury to his hearing. The official statement is below the poster.

Tour - ACDC - Rock Or Bust NA 2016

The Press Release:
AC/DC TO RESCHEDULE UPCOMING U.S. TOUR DATES; SINGER BRIAN JOHNSON ADVISED BY DOCTORS TO DISCONTINUE TOURING

AC/DC are forced to reschedule the 10 upcoming dates on the U.S. leg of their “Rock or Bust” World Tour. AC/DC’s lead singer, Brian Johnson, has been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss. Tomorrow’s show in Atlanta through Madison Square Garden in New York, NY in early April will be made up later in the year, likely with a guest vocalist. More information regarding these rescheduled shows to come. Current ticket holders can hold on to their tickets for the rescheduled dates or receive a refund at point of purchase.

AC/DC North American Tour Dates:
March 8 – Atlanta, GA @ Philips Arena
March 11 – Ft. Lauderdale, FL @ BB&T Center
March 14 – Greensboro, NC @ Greensboro Coliseum
March 17 – Washington, DC @ Verizon Center
March 20 – Detroit, MI @ The Palace
March 23 – Columbus, OH @ Nationwide Arena
March 26 – Cleveland, OH @ Quicken Loans Arena
March 29 – Buffalo, NY @ First Niagara Center
April 1 – Philadelphia, PA @ Wells Fargo Center
April 4 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow does that suck and I really hope that Brian will be able to come out of this as best as humanly possible. Hearing loss is not something a musician can risk and after years and years of throttling fans with AC/DC you know he has gotten some damage in this area. Being told that he faces complete deafness if he continues has got to be some scary information even at 68 years of age. I’ve made it a point to wear earplugs at all the concerts that I attend and have had this in play since I used to be in a band myself. I really suggest that you younger fans give this a whirl as well since you have a lot of concert going years ahead of you and they do not take away from your show enjoyment at all. This is serious business folks so let’s keep Brian in our minds and send well wishes for a positive outcome. I cannot imagine seeing AC/DC with another vocalist at this point but if that is what is heading our way I guess we best prepare ourselves for shows with a special guest singer. When any new dates get released I will be sure to post them here on the website. Thoughts if any, can be left in the comments section.

Machine Head Cancels Upcoming US Tour For 2014

While I hate to be the bearer of bad news, I fear that I must do so again as I share with you the knowledge that Machine Head has canceled their upcoming 2014 US Tour. The run would have found them joined by Children of Bodom, Epica and Battlecross which would have been an “interesting” blend of Metal flavors for sure. The reason they are citing is based on their new album taking longer to complete. The bands statement follows the planned tour poster.
