Swedish Viking metallers AMON AMARTH have announced on their official website they were forced to cancel the Scandinavian tour with CANNIBAL CORPSE:
"We regret to announce that we've decided to cancel our participation in the Scandinavian tour supporting Cannibal Corpse. It was economically impossible for us to complete the tour due to extremely high expenses surrounding the travelling arrangements. We are of course very sad that this didn't work out, but hope to be back touring Scandinavia sometime in the near future.
For the third time in the bands career we're performing at Wacken Open Air this coming weekend. We'll be playing on the Black Stage at 2:00 am Friday night (or Saturday morning if you will). We're really looking forward to the show, and hope to see all of you up front bangning your heads!
