Therion - Vocalist Forced To Sit Out Select Dates On Tour

According to the band's MySpace page, Therion mainman Christofer Johnsson has vowed to carry on with the group's North American tour even if vocalist Snowy Shaw is forced to sit out a few dates due to his passport being stolen in San Francisco, CA.

In a statement sent earlier today, Johnsson said, "Just want to correct what was just posted by Snowy. There is no risk at all that we will be canceling shows. He may lose a few shows, but we will carry on those without him with Thomas doing his vocal parts. Promoters and fans that travel far can be sure the shows will take place and the only reliable source for possible cancellations of shows is the official Therion web page."

UPDATED on 24 October:

Therion have checked in with the following update from mainman Christofer Johnsson regarding the stolen passport situation of bassist Snowy Shaw:

"Snowy got his passport stolen in San Franciso (as some of you already know). He traveled to Japan with a temporary pass and managed to get a new Visa for Japan. While there he has now managed to sort out a new American Visa and has arrived safely to Denver airport and will be making it to the show in Engelwood in good time."

OK, so if you guys followed the link and read the story as typed by Snowy Shaw you'll know what happened to him.

First of all, who in their right mind takes the band to the Tenderloin area to eat?! It is the most dangerous area in San Francisco!

Second of all, good for the Japanese Embassy on expediting the paper work and permitting Snowy to complete his vocal duties in Japan.

Thirdly, shame on the American Embassy for not following in the same footsteps as the Japanese one (I am not surprised here)

I don't understand why did Snowy decide to take all of his things with him, instead of leaving it safely in the tour bus
