Dark Tranquillity Cancel Canadian Dates On Upcoming Tour With Kataklysm & Nailed To Obscurity, Announce New U.S. Shows

Dark Tranquillity have cancelled the Canadian dates on their upcoming North American tour with Kataklysm and Nailed To Obscurity. With this news, the band have also booked new dates in Fort Wayne, IN and Cudahy, WI.

Dark Tranquillity commented:

“We are very sad announcing that due to the Covid restrictions in Canada we are not able to do our shows in Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. Things are moving fast and just after recording this video we got news that Vancouver also need to be cancelled this time around.

We are extremely frustrated since Canada is one of our favourite places on earth to perform. We will make sure to come back and do this properly as soon as possible.

This creates a gap in our schedule and we have been offered to do the following shows instead:

Feb 03 – Fort Wayne
Feb 04 – Cudahy

The rest of the tour is unaffected

Carlos Santana Cancels Las Vegas Residency Shows Following Heart Scare

Carlos Santana has cancelled his residency dates at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV due to a heart scare. The guitarist said the following about that:

“Just wanted to share with you some clarity with specificity what’s been going on with my physicality. There’s been rumors flying around here and there about this and that. So, I’m here to just crystallize and make it clear. Last Saturday I had an incident where I asked my wife Cindy to take me to the hospital ’cause I had this thing happening in my chest. So, when we went there we found out that I needed to take care of it. So I am, and so I’m going to be taking time out for a little bit to make sure I replenish and I rest and catch up with my health so that when I play for you I would play the way I’m used to and give you 150 percent. I wouldn’t show up unless I can do that. So other than that, I hope you and your family are enjoying good health, peace of mind, and joy. I know I will. Thank you for being a fan, and your oneness, and your caring. Peace.”
