Suomessakin hiljattain vieraillut ja parhaillaan muuta Eurooppaa yhdessä Five Finger Death Punchin kanssa kiertävä Papa Roach on päättänyt peruuttaa loput Euroopan kiertueensa keikat. Voit lukea yhtyeen virallisen tiedotteen aiheesta tästä:
”It is again with a heavy heart that we are announcing the postponement of the remainder of our European tour.
”We pride ourselves for rarely canceling shows, but our crew is an essential part of our organization and because they, unfortunately, could not continue the tour due to their logistical challenges and uncertainties, we could not either. We respect them and have had to accept their difficult choice to return home. We shall return next year. We will announce more details on rescheduling as soon as we are able to. ”
Five Finger Death Punch aikoo soittaa sovitut keikat normaalisti. Yhtye on tiedottanut asiasta seuraavaa:
”Despite some significant challenges in Europe since the horrible events in Paris recently, we have continued on our tour and remained dedicated to our mission of providing you, the fans, the highest quality show in the safest possible show environment. As a result of new and increased travel/transportation restrictions and challenges, in some cities we are scheduled to play, we are unable to fulfill this promise, so we were forced to postpone those shows. We continue to face additional challenges but remain committed to finishing out the tour as best as we can.
”We are not a band that is used to postponing or canceling shows. In fact, we have always prided ourselves on showing up onstage no matter what, so these extenuating circumstances have been particularly challenging for us, as artists, given the high standard we place on ourselves to deliver for the fans.
”FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will finish out the remaining European tour dates without PAPA ROACH and DEVIL YOU KNOW in Düsseldorf, Germany and at Wembley Arena in the U.K. The lineup for Düsseldorf will include FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, ESKIMO CALLBOY, SKINDRED and NOTHING MORE. For Wembley it will be FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, SKINDRED, AS LIONS and THE ONE HUNDRED. The show in Brussels will be postponed, but we will be back soon to play for our Belgian fans.
”We appreciate everyone’s support as we continue to navigate these largely uncharted waters. Nothing gives us greater satisfaction than delivering the best show possible in the safest conditions.”
