Loudness performing May 19, 2011 at Ground Zero in Minneapolis.
This is bad news, indeed - not one, but two big show cancellations. First, Loudness has cancelled their show tomorrow, Saturday, April 27 at the Hi 5 Bar in Burnsville due to visa issues. This was to be the first night of Loudness's short U.S. tour, and it's unclear at this time if this will force the cancelation of other dates. The promoter, Viking Rocker Productions has posted the following notice on the ticket sale page at Vital Culture:
"Viking Rocker Productions was just informed today that National Recording Artist Loudness has cancelled their appearance on Saturday April 27th.
"Our sincere apologies regarding the short notice due to visa issues that LOUDNESS will have to cancel the upcoming scheduled show with you
Pre-ordered tickets will be refunded as needed you MUST turn in your ticket to get a refund to place of purchase.
Our Sincere Apologies
Viking Rocker Producitons"
Downtread will still perform tomorrow at the Hi 5 along with Arena - this will be a free show.
Hypocrisy performing May 23, 2010 at Station 4 in St. Paul.
Visa issues today also forced the cancellation of the upcoming Hypocrisy tour as reported by Blabbermouth. The tour was scheduled to stop at Station 4 in St. Paul on Tuesday, May 7. According to this report Aborted has also dropped off the tour, but it will continue with Krisiun, Arsis, and Starkill. I'll post more details about this show when they are confirmed.
