Ministry have cancelled their European/UK tour with The 69 Eyes and Wednesday 13. The trek was previously scheduled to take place this fall.
The news was confirmed by Wednesday 13:
“Hello everyone! We were told yesterday that the @weareministry European tour has been canceled and that’s all the info we have at the moment. This is truly beyond our control and we are devastated with this news. We hope to get a new headline tour booked soon so we can get back to our fans in Europe and the UK.”
The Damnation Festival in Manchester, UK also issued the following statement:
“We’ve just been told, literally minutes ago by e-mail, that Ministry have cancelled their entire European tour due to a festival they were due to play on that run being cancelled without any warning.
This is obviously a huge blow to Damnation, albeit not one that will have any impact on it taking place in Manchester in November.
We haven’t really had a chance to digest the news, or even start to consider a replacement as yet, but we didn’t want our fans to find out via third parties, or worse, have Ministry fans buying tickets tonight when we know they won’t be playing.
This is the statement we’ve been sent from the band:
‘Due to previously unforeseen circumstances, including the recent cancelation of a festival, we are forced to cancel our fall Europe tour. Hope to see you all next summer.'”
