Swedish metallers Dark Tranquillity have issued the following update on their official website:

"Right now, a mere 15 hours before planning to leave for the airport, we got informed by the promotor Unirock that the entire Turkish tour has been cancelled.

This is incredibly frustrating for us. Turkey is the home of some of the most passionate and devoted Dark Tranquillity fans on the planet, and we very much looked forward to the adventure of playing not only Istanbul but other cities as well.

We've spent lots of time and energy preparing for these shows; rehearsing, hiring crew, fixing merchandise and working out an enormous amount of practical and logistical details, and to see it all getting cancelled in the very last minute is extremely disappointing.

We understand that the people that planned to go to the shows will be very upset and disappointed by this news, and we want it to be crystal clear that we - the band - had no part in the cancellation.

We hope to able to return to Turkey as soon as possible."

I believe you were drunk or high when you wrote this shit, or you are badly ignorant of Turkey. We are secular, if you don't know. And metal won't be banned! How can you even say that?

have you ever been to istanbul? i am pretty sure no, so here is a small information for you..
1. turkey is not a islam state..check wikipedia for the meaning of islam state and some examples
2. i grew up in istanbul and for 8 years i am living in germany..i have seen a lot of european towns and metal scenes..istanbul has -as DT members declared- a large number of the deadly passionate metal fans and yes one of the biggest metal scenes in its huge underground culture..
3. to have an opinion about something, first you need information about it..sitting in front of -open end- information source called internet, ignoring it, and sharing your scientificly "wrong" opinions again over internet is nothing but annoying..

a friendly tipp, do not annoy people..
