Volbeat Cancel Upcoming Show Due to Labor Strikes
Volbeat just announced the cancellation of their upcoming show in Finland due to labor strikes occurring within the country. The show was scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 27.
"Due to the country-wide labor strikes, we will unfortunately have to cancel our show at Hartwall Arena this Wednesday, November 27th," the band wrote in a statement posted on their Twitter. "Many of the people and services that we depend on to get the bands, touring crew and gear safely to and from Helsinki will be on strike and it will be impossible for us to arrive in your beautiful city in time for the show."
"Please know that we hope for these strikes to have a positive outcome, and we are already planning our next trip to come play for all of you amazing fans."
Fans who purchased tickets for the concert can request a full refund. Read the full statement below.
Volbeat had a mishap at an earlier show this fall in Belfast when frontman Michael Poulsen was experiencing technical difficulties onstage and wasn't able to hear the band. The band released a statement following the performance rescheduling the show. More details on that can be found here.
