Metal Daze: The Metalcamp Diaries, Part V

... Continued from Part IV...

FRIDAY 8/10

9:00am. For the first time since arriving, I wake up without a sore neck. In profound relief and gratitude, I kiss the small-but-soft pillow I managed to procure at Kik yesterday.

There’s a preparation and packing lesson to be learned in there… somewhere. More...

Pain Forced To Cancel Shows In Portugal

Pain announced that due to problems with the local promoter, the band is forced to cancel the two shows in Portugal: November 1, 2011 (Porto) and November 2, 2011 (Lisbon).

Peter Tägtgren explained the situation as follows: “We're very sorry to announce that we have been forced to cancel our two shows in Portugal on November 1st in Porto an November 2nd in Lisbon. As some of you may have noticed it's been difficult to find out when, where and how to get tickets for the shows. The local promoter has been hard to reach, and now we found out that he has cancelled one of the shows without even talking to us first or letting us know after. Because of these uncertain conditions we decided to go out with this announcement. We were really looking forward to end the European part of the tour in Lisbon, and we're really sad that we can't come to Portugal this time.”
