Major bummer! Our friends from SHADOWS FALL have been forced to drop out from their upcoming tour with TESTAMENT and their co-headlining tour with Ill Niño. A statement from the band follows:
"Due to a number of circumstances beyond our control, Shadows Fall has been forced to cancel our upcoming European tour with Testament and our co-headlining UK run with Ill Niño. We tried everything we could to make this tour happen and exhausted all options we could think of but unfortunately we were not able to work it out. We sincerely apologize to all the fans, promoters and bands involved. Everyone in Shadows Fall thank you for understanding and we plan on making it up to our European fans as soon as possible."
UPDATE from Brian Fair: "There were many circumstances and not just Jon being with Anthrax. I have my first child on the way and originally this was only a short tour with Testament that due to financial reasons grew much longer to try and make it work. I had a lot of birthing classes and doctors appointments that my wife and I needed to attend and I didn't want to abandon her. Trust me. There were a lot more reasons this tour didn't happen. Don't just blame Jon when you don't know the entire story. That original post was never the whole story and was never suppose to be posted. We are really bummed out we couldn't make this tour happen. Too many obstacles both business wise and in our personal lives."
We will keep you posted as in when SHADOWS FALL will return to Europe.
