Shinedown has canceled their upcoming European tour, citing “economic and logistical” issues.
“As most of you know, we’re not a band who cancels shows,” the “Planet Zero” rockers write in a since-deleted tweet. “We can think of maybe twice that we’ve done it in our 20 year career. That’s what makes this decision very difficult.”
“Alas, the economic and logistical side of touring currently in Europe are growing too heavy for us to be able to make this feasible at this present time,” the statement continues. “With that being said, we’ve made this difficult yet necessary decision. We can’t put into words how much it sucks to have to cancel shows. We’re very much looking forward to coming back very soon and making this up to you.”
The international tour, which also featured Asking Alexandria and Zero 9:36 on the bill, was set to kick off November 7 and stretch into December. All of the dates have been scrapped, except for five shows in the U.K.
“These decisions are never made lightly, especially with this band,” Shinedown concludes. “We love you and we love touring Europe, and we WILL be back.”
Shinedown has been touring throughout the year in support of their new album, Planet Zero, which dropped in July.
