GWAR have been forced to cancel their upcoming European tour including all UK dates.
GWARs 2011 European tour has been cancelled, say the band in a statement. Ticket sales were slow so promoters started pulling the plug on shows. Finally, we had so many blow-outs that we had no choice but to cancel the whole thing. We cant afford to pay to play Europe, after all we arent fucking tourists! But we are extremely disappointed this happened and very sorry for our fans over there, especially in light of recent events. I know everybody over there wanted to say goodbye to Flattus in a way that a only a GWAR show could provide, and we were really looking forward to sharing that with you guys.
Hopefully all tickets will be refunded (plz let us know if they are not). Again we are really sorry this happened, but there was nothing we could do. Very, very bummed but GWAR still lives, and will return to reap a bloody vengeance too terrible to comprehend.
GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus has hit out big-style at European promoters and the attitude of scenesters in a huge Twitter rant following the band being forced to pull out of their European tour.
