Progressive metallers SYMPHONY X have issued the following update via their official web site:

"Hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but there are two items that need to be made public, which we have just been informed of (or we'd have announced it much sooner).

"Number one: Toronto will be the last date of the Gigantour that SYMPHONY X will be playing; they will not appear at the Seattle date, or any others that may be scheduled after September 3.

"Number two: We've just been informed that there will not be any second stage bands appearing at the San Diego or Boston dates, due to either space or curfew issues. Therefore, SYMPHONY X won't be appearing at those dates either.

"Our apologies to those who'll be affected by these items; we have no control over these issues, and have done our best to inform you as soon as we got the info ourselves."

Gigantour is a six-week festival trek co-headlined by MEGADETH and DREAM THEATER. Other main-stage acts include FEAR FACTORY, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and NEVERMORE. Also scheduled to appear on the second stage are DRY KILL LOGIC, BOBAFLEX and LIFE OF AGONY.
