Tribute Shows To DEATH's Chuck Shuldiner "Death To All" Postponed Because Of Low Ticket Sales! #SupportMetal

The "Death To All Tour 2012" (presented by Sick Drummer Magazine and Perseverance Holdings Ltd.) is coming to the United States this week in benefit of Sweet Relief. The short tour will feature a handful of DEATH All-Starts, as well as various special guests. This tour is to celebrate the life and music of Chuck Schuldiner, as well as to raise awareness of Sweet Relief Musicians Fund — a charity that provides financial assistance to career musicians faced with illness, disability or age-related problems.

Yesterday it was announced that the Dallas stop of the upcoming Death to All Tour has been postponed. Today the organizers have announced that the Atlanta show has also been put on hold. The reason? Both of these shows were in danger of being cancelled due to low advance ticket sales, which is happening way too often! Here is the official statement regarding this matter:

“It is with regret that we have to postpone the Atlanta and Dallas dates for Death To All 2012, but there is a good side. Many things have led us to this point including very low ticket sales, issues with opening bands being available and several other factors. We are very sorry to all of the Death fans this has caused an inconvenience and wish things could have been different. We did everything in our power to avoid this situation, but in the end the choice had to be made. The good news is that we are working to re-schedule these dates for early next year, and if possible, add more dates surrounding them in new cities! Please hold on to your tickets, as they will be honored.”

Here is the list of scheduled tour dates:

- June 22: The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, CA
- June 23: House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA
- June 26: House of Blues in Chicago, IL
- June 28: Irving Plaza in New York, NY
- June 30: The Beacham in Orlando, FL

Postponed tour dates:

- July 1: The Masquerade in Atlanta, GA (Atheist)
- July 3: House of Blues in Dallas, TX (Atheist)

The line up:

- Drums: Gene Hoglan ("Individual Thought Patterns", "Symbolic") and Sean Reinert ("Human")
- Bass: Steve DiGiorgio ("Human", "Individual Thought Patterns") and Scott Clendenin ("The Sound Of Perseverance")
- Guitars: Paul Masvidal ("Human"), Shannon Hamm ("The Sound of Perseverance") and Bobby Koelble ("Symbolic")
- Special guest vocalists: Charles Elliot (Abysmal Dawn), Steffen Kummerer (Obscura), 
- The opening slots of the short tour will be divided between Gorguts and Atheist.
