Portuguese metalheads Moonspell have canceled their UK and Ireland tour, which was due to start on November 29th and end on December 5th.
The band said on social media: “In agreement with the promoters and our agency, we have decided to cancel our Fullmoon Over the UK and Ireland Tour.”
“We are of course sorry to bring such sad news, but we had no other choice.”
“The reasons for this decision are, as you can imagine, the huge financial crisis that the UK, Ireland and Europe are going through, which is affecting the sales of the show.”
“We want to meet you under better circumstances and we will work hard to bring you a show worth your money and your time if possible in 2023.”
“To everyone who purchased a ticket, please accept our apologies and gratitude. You can request your refund from your ticket provider.”
“To all the promoters, we sincerely thank you for your efforts and your loyalty, and we look forward to working together again in the near future.”
“THE SHOWS IN GREECE, ISRAEL AND DUBAI WILL BE REMAINED AND ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THIS CANCELLATION.”
“Thank you for your support, during the spell!”
Previously, Moonspell had canceled their 2022 North American summer tour due to “intractable logistical and transportation issues”.
In September, Moonspell released a very special Blu-ray/DVD, a live performance of their latest studio album in a cave, entitled From Down Below – Live 80 Meters Deep, via Napalm Records.
Moonspell’s latest album, Hermitage, was released in February 2021 via Napalm Records.
