Cancellation announcements are pretty much the standard at the moment due to the continuing problems from the damned Coronavirus Pandemic and now this news from Finland’s own Amorphis who were planning on an exciting run of dates. Read on.
Dear fans in USA and Canada. Amorphis is sad to announce that due to the Covid-19 also our ”Tales From The Thousand Lakes” anniversary-tour is cancelled. We were optimistic to the very end but it looks like there’s not going to be any tours for quite a while now. However, the anniversary-tour will happen. A rescheduling of the tour dates is planned but obviously not set yet as nobody knows how long this pandemia is going to take. The most important thing now is to take care or each others and families. See you soon friends, we all are going to get through these hard times! For ticket refunds please contact your ticket provider. Continue reading Amorphis Cancels “Tales From The Thousand Lakes” Tour Due To Covid-19 Pandemic→
Though I know that cancellation news after cancellation news comes as no surprise to the readership, we will continue to post these alerts to make sure that you check your own personal calenders and the credit card statement so you can be properly refunded. Earlier today, the mighty Hammerfall announced that they too would be cancelling the tour that was heading our way in September and October. Read on down below.
Some of you have already started to get your refunds, so now it’s official: the North American tour that was to take place in September/October is cancelled. That sucks, but with the current global pandemic wreaking havoc on the world we (meaning the local promoters, booking agent and the band) had no choice. We are hopeful to be able to rebook the tour for a future time, but since everything is so unstable at the moment the decision was made to scrap altogether it and return to it when things have calmed down. We are as sorry for this as you are, but hope you have understanding for our predicament brought on by the Corona virus. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay metal, and take care of each other! #HammerHigh Continue reading Hammerfall Cancels 2020 North American Headline Tour→
