Lordi Cancel Waken Open Air Appearance

Finnish heavy metal monsters LORDI have cancelled their previously announced appearance at this year's installment of the Wacken Open Air festival, set to take place August 2-4, 2007 in Wacken, Germany.

LORDI management has issued the following statement regarding the matter:

"It is with deep and genuine regret that LORDI are forced to cancel their scheduled appearance at this year's Wacken Open Air. The band has been offered a headline, main stage slot at this year's Ozzfest, and so are unable to leave that tour in order to perform at Wacken. The band wish to sincerely apologise to the booker, the organizers, and especially their fans for this situation, but their hands are tied. LORDI look forward to performing at Wacken in the near future."

LORDI has already been confirmed for the 2008 edition of the festival, set to take place July 31 - August 2, 2008.

I like how Lordi makes it seem like they're being held against their will and not like they're just following the money.

Actually they won't get no money from ozzfest since it's free this year.
They're not following the money, they just "turned away" from the money.

Look like GWAR and have songs that sound like they could be covers from AC/DC for instance Hard Rock Halleluiah. AC/DC was always puttin the word rock in the title of their songs

GWAR may dress like morons also, but at the end of the day GWAR is a METAL band. Lordi are a poor excuse for any genre of music, least of all metal. The album Lordi put out has enough self-parody to make the Insane Clown Posse blush.
