Lamb of God Cancel 2012 North American Tour
We were pumped earlier this year when we shared with you dates on the upcoming Lamb of God/Dethklok/Gojira North American tour. We are now sad to share with you that the tour has been cancelled due to Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe’s bogus imprisonment.
For those of you not aware, Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic last month and charged with manslaughter from the accidental death of a fan at a Lamb of God show a few years ago. You can read the statement about the cancellation from the band down below:
LAMB OF GOD/ DETHKLOK TOUR CANCELED…
Due to the continued incarceration of LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the band’s co-headline tour with Dethklok scheduled to begin August 1st in Seattle is being cancelled. The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randy’s release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour. Upon Randy’s release, it is the band’s intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.
LAMB OF GOD wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour. Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no LAMB OF GOD.
From all of us at Concert Confessions we wish Randy the best of luck and send good energy out in the world that he is cleared of these bogus charges ASAP.
