Slipknot Officially Cancel Spring/Summer Dates

Slipknot have officially cancelled their spring/summer dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band issued the following statement:

“Unfortunately Slipknot’s summer 2020 touring, including the North American Knotfest Roadshow, Knotfest UK and Knotfest at Sea, will not be happening. The band looks forward to performing for its fans again, and will do so when everyone’s safety can be assured. All ticket holders will be emailed directly with refund options, Knotfest At Sea purchasers will be contacted with postponement information.”

Failure Cancel July Shows

Failure have officially cancelled their July shows in Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York due to the coronavirus pandemic. Those dates were supposed to feature full album performances of “Comfort,“ “Magnified,” and “Fantastic Planet.“

Failure commented:

“Failure fans and anyone who bought tickets to any of the nine shows the band was scheduled to perform this July 2020. All nine shows are officially cancelled. The band have been planning and preparing to do the shows, but the reality is concerts like this are not going to be safe well past July, and may not be allowed to comeback until wide adoption of a vaccine is in place.

Although the band does plan to eventually reschedule these shows, we feel it would be a mistake to reschedule them at this point, when there is no realistic way of knowing when concerts will be safe again. We are very aware that many ticket holders for these shows also have travel and accommodation bookings to contend with and we don’t want you to have to deal with rescheduling all of that twice.

As soon as the path forward for safe concerts becomes clearer, we will rebook these shows. The band wants everyone to know how disappointed we are that these shows are cancelled, but in the big picture this is just a delay, and these shows will eventually happen.

In the meantime, some good news to report. The band just received a second set of test pressings from the plant that is manufacturing the Failure 1992-1996 Box Set and they sound great! We are approving them and hope to see the Box Set move into production next week! Stay tuned.


Motionless In White Officially Cancel Tour With Knocked Loose, Stick To Your Guns, & Ovtlier

Motionless In White have officially cancelled their U.S. tour with Knocked Loose, Stick To Your Guns, and Ovtlier due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band are still planning to rebook the trek at some point, but they decided to cancel it for the time being so fans can get refunds.

Motionless In White said the following:

“U.S MIW Fans –

After processing the information our band and team have been receiving regarding the uncertain future of live events in the near future, as well as factoring in refund policies from various ticketing companies, we have decided to mark the Black & Blue Tour as “canceled” for the time being.

We fully plan to rebook the tour as early as we can once we start to see live events returning around the world. Though this is a tough decision, considering it “canceled” now allows you to collect refunds and that is what we feel is the best course of action.

We hope that everyone is staying healthy and sane right now. We are looking forward to finally getting back on the road to see you.”

Papa Roach, Hollywood Undead, & Ice Nine Kills Officially Cancel Remaining European Dates

The remaining dates on Papa Roach, Hollywood Undead, and Ice Nine Kills’ European tour have officially been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The bands were previously planning to reschedule the shows, but they were unable to do so.

Suicidal Tendencies Cancel Spring/Summer Dates

Suicidal Tendencies have cancelled their spring and summer dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. The group also confirmed that Infectious Grooves’ June show has been cancelled as well.

The band commented:

“Unfortunately due to the Corona virus, concerts and gatherings pretty much all around the World are being cancelled.

Obviously peoples health and safety come first at this time and it’s out of our hands.

Hellfest in France that both ST and IG were supposed to play this year has been cancelled and they are hoping to move to June 2021.

All the upcoming ST shows and festivals in May, June, July and August have been cancelled or postponed to next year.

We hopefully will have info on the postponed shows.

Also, the Infectious Grooves show at the Warfield Theatre on June 13th has been cancelled.

If you purchased your tickets via AXS online or phone, a refund will automatically be issued to the credit card you used to purchase within 30 business days. Otherwise, refunds are available at your original point of purchase.

Because no one really knows at this time when they things will go back “to normal”, most festivals and events can’t be moved and are setting up for next year or cancelling.

Again, we’ll have more info as we get it, but it will probably be awhile before anyone really knows what’s going on.

ln the meantime, STay Safe and Sane!”
