Arch Enemy Postpones UK Tour

by | Apr 22, 2010

Arch Enemy have postponed their UK tour scheduled to kick off next week due to volcanic ash in Europe. The band comments:

“Sorry to all our great UK fans, but the tour we had scheduled for next week has unfortunately been postponed ’til November 2010. As we all know, it’s been a tough time in Europe with the volcanic ash shutting down airspace in 23 countries and causing travel misery for millions of people. One minute airports are open – the next they are not. We are determined to make these shows work but don’t want to dissapoint our fans, so it has been mutually agreed upon that the best way forward is to postpone the UK dates ’til November. The NEW dates are: November 23 – Manchester @ Academy 2 November 24 – Glasgow @ Garage November 25 – Wolverhampton @ Wulfrun Hall November 27 – London @ The Forum “All tickets will remain valid for the postponed dates. “We’d like to thank all of the promoters who took on the shows, and also the support bands — everything was shaping up very nicely and their professionalism is obvious. We appreciate their willingness to make these shows happen later in 2010 and we’re more eager than ever to do so. It’s important to make it clear that this is not a cancellation — we just have to move the tour to a different time. “Sorry again to all who planned to attend. Hope to see you in November!”
