Portugal's Moonspell have posted the following message on their official web site:

First off, we are cancelling our headliner show at Salon de Provence on the 23th of March due to low presale. We can not compromise the rest of the tour on the account of this and also it could come as a financial disaster to the promoter. So in hope we ever get there we might need a stronger fan basis in this location in France. The good news are that we are playing both dates in Paris at the end of this tour and also that we are confirming our presence in Rotonde Festival, Hirson, on the 21st of May. Also Moonspell will be playing on Nummmirock, Finland, on the 25 of June.

We will announce soon other further dates in Portugal and still under negotiation are other appeareances on festivals.

About the quite polemic who's playing first or last in Portugal and after many other comments in our forum, Moonspell would like to set the record straight. In all Europe, we were invited by Cradle of Filth to support them and that is what we are doing to the best of our conditions and regardless of those we are putting all our heart on the stage show and the reactions have proved fair so far.

In Portugal, Cradle of Filth will close the show by mutual agreement between bands and promoters. Goes without saying that our status in Portugal is different than in the rest of Europe but besides this status talk what it matters is that there are two bands which have proven themselves on the scene through the originality and quality of their music and that the Portuguese fans will even welcome a different show where Moonspell and Cradle of Filth will have equal conditions, equal stage times and equal full production on stage. That was the way found for both Cradle of Filth and Moonspell fans to enjoy this tour and both bands' show at their fullest. Not to mention equal willingness to bring a true experience to the Portuguese crowds as this country cherish so much both bands since we first played together in Lisbon, year 1994 (!) also the great the Haunted will share the stage with us, a concert not to be missed so show up in time will you!
