The Bilocate and Swallow The Sun show in Dubai has been cancelled, with Bilocate issuing this statement:

"Regretfully, we announce that our show with Swallow the Sun and Aramaic got canceled, due to a complaint issued, falsely claiming the show would include practices unacceptable by the hosting community from a cultural perspective (as per the organizing team).

"We know it's such a disappointment, for us as well, but we'll do our best to make it happen next time. Don't forget to join us all this Friday at The Music Room with the other bands. Please refer to the official organizer page for details."

Swallow The Sun adds: "Today we got some very very sad news. Sadly we can't perform our music to you guys. But some of us are still coming to Dubai to meet you. I guess it's better than nothing? We are so sorry."

Metal East Records also commented: "What we know so far that a competitor has actually filed this complaint mentioning the show was promoting devil-worshiping (which we all know is not the case). The show will continue and since none of the original line up can’t perform, let's fill the bill up with some local talents and celebrate never giving up on the music we love. "
