Swedish metallers Evergrey have issued the following update on their MySpace page:

"This month is getting embarrassing, for us and the people who we work with. We are sorry to announce, that for circumstances and reasons beyond our control, we are forced to cancel the scheduled Evergrey European Tour in April.

We would like to apologize to all the fans of both bands for the last minute decision and promise to work on getting new dates set up as soon as possible. Its always hard to let people down and both bands were extremely excited to play for all of their fans in Europe but sometimes things apparently dont go as planned. Which makes us in the band really frustrated and mad.

I hope all of you understand that we are a band nothing more. This is what we live off and for, to play and tour, therefore we can promise that we are more sorry than anyone. This might not ease the disappointment for some of you but as said it's out of our control and involves so much details that none of you would be wiser of knowing.

As with the cancelled date in Atlanta we promise to make up for it as soon as we can and get a chance.

Two shows are however still on:

April 04 - Vosselaar, Belgium @ Biebob (support band: Manic Movement)
April 05 - Zoetermeer, The Netherlands @ Boerderij (support band: Mother Of Sin)

We decided that we would just rent a fucking van and travel in total 2500 km to at least play for some of you as all things surrounding these two shows are up to standard and still possible to do. Which the other ones aren't. We understand that people might think that - If they do those show they can do it all - unfortunately that's not true. We would do it all, in a van, if possible but so many circumstances prevent us from it.

What can we say more than that we are sorry."

Wtf is with all these bands canceling tours/gigs in the past months? it might be that i didn't care for stuff like this before, but there does seem to be a large amount of bands who canceled some of their shows.. Wintersun, Saxon, Iced Earth, Judas, now Evergrey etc.

Well, they weren't coming to Portugal anyway! lol

But I do feel for the people who had the tickets for the shows.

Too bad I wanted to go to their gig here in Slovenia oh well, some other time then.

Sounds like it is out of their control. Really genuine band who want to tour, probably crap promoters.

What he should have said is, "We decided that we would just rent a fucking van... and play across the world IN THE VAN. Limited seats available!"

Suuuucks...all but 2 shows? damn.

The world economy isn't the most viable one right now for long tours. It's not easy to start a tour when you receive no financial support from the record label or others.
