GODSMACK Forced To Cancel Remaining Dates Of European Tour - Statement From Sully Erna Available!

     Photo by: Steve Lars

This just in: GODSMACK have announced that due to continued vocal issues with singer Sully Erna, the band has no option but to cancel the remaining dates on its currently scheduled European tour. Erna was examined by throat specialists in the U.S. yesterday and the advice of his doctors has been to not sing for the next several weeks to allow time for his vocal cords to heal. Here is a statement from Sully Erna:

"Sorry, Europe. Seems like we can't catch a break there lately. London, you were one of the best crowds we've played to in a very long time.... Belgium, you were awesome as well. As for the rest of you in Europe that we weren't able to reach, I promise you we'll be back!! For now it's lots of rest and fluids for me until my vocal specialist clears me to sing again. My deepest apologies Europe! You'll see us again. Thanks for your support and understanding."

The current trek marked the first time GODSMACK had toured Europe in nearly nine years, and the band was only able to perform two of their fourteen scheduled dates in Europe.

As previously reported, GODSMACK will perform on the main stage of The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival along with multiplatinum Rock bands SHINEDOWN, STAIND and PAPA ROACH, along with breaking band ADELITAS WAY. In addition, the Ernie Ball Stage and Jägermeister Stage in the festival area will include performances from multiplatinum headliner P.O.D., as well as up-and-coming artists DEUCE, FOZZY, REDLIGHT KING, MINDSET EVOLUTION (winner of the 2011 Uproar Battle Of The Bands), IN THIS MOMENT, THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH, CANDLELIGHT RED and a local Battle Of The Bands winner.
