I doubt any of you guys heard about it but unfortunately this concert did not take place,Anathema were there at the venue,the crowd was there,everything was set,but the concert didn't happen,sad isn't it?espatially when I think of people who came from very far even from morocco.this video sums it up,sorry the guy who did the video made it overly french:

That's terrible, this is why I don't encourage having metal concerts in Arabian countries, if there was a whisper (even if it was wrong) for anything related to the concert that touches the religion, that's it, it is cancelled. All the effort and money put by the organizers, the bands who came, and the fans who travelled is just wasted.

No no,Let me explain this to you,I was there and I followed the story step by step:

First, the concert was not cancelled because the authorities thought that Anathema were satanists,and I don't think that would be the reason to cancel any gig in tunisia,there are no boundaries here on music,we had many other bands play here that the accusation of satanism would fit them better,actually that was the reason the promoter told to the band and to the fans in his official statement,but that was not the real reason,because the authorities don't consider anonymous letters.the truth is that the promoter didn't follow the whole legal procedure to schedule a concert,he 'thought' the management of The Acropolium(the venue) would take care of that,thus the concert went ILLEGAL,the promoter probably didn't see much of importance since the gig was small and thought the authorities wouldn't even know,but here comes the role of "Zorro" as described in Darryl's blog,this guy is claimed to bring the attention of the authorities that there was a gig going to take place,so they moved to stop it,not because of what was said by Zorro about satanism but because the gig was actually illegal.

So the promoter,in a desperate shot,tried to postpone the gig two days,and go through the legal procedure,but in vain.
