ANTHRAX haben die ersten drei Europa Auftritte abgesagt und zeitgleich hat Sänger Dan Nelson die Band verlassen.
„As announced last week, thrash legends ANTHRAX regretfully cancelled the first three dates on the second leg of their European tour due to new vocalist Dan Nelsons unexpected illness. An additional seven European dates are also cancelled, those scheduled from July 22 to July 30.
„ANTHRAX is thrilled to announce that they will play the August 1 Sonisphere festival in Knebworth, England, with their good friend John Bush [ANTHRAXs singer from 1992 to 2005] joining them for a very special one-off performance.
„The members of ANTHRAX have confirmed the departure of vocalist Dan Nelson. In light of this development, ANTHRAXs slot on the U.S. SLIPKNOT dates set for August and September, has also been cancelled. ANTHRAX is already actively considering lead singer candidates, and looks forward to hitting the road before the end of the year.“
