Pain Members Attacked By Thugs In Germany

PAIN touring guitarist Marcus Jidell (ROYAL HUNT, HOUSE OF SHAKIRA), who is currently on the road with the band supporting NIGHTWISH in Europe, has checked in with this message:

"We had to cancel the gig tonight in Leipzig while some crazy assholes kicked Peter (Tägtgren), Johan (Husgafvel) and David (Wallin) down when they where on their way home from a local bar yesterday. They just came from behind so there was nothing they could do. I was in the bus watching a movie so I am totally okay, besides the fact that we had to cancel. I feel really shitty to cancel but there was no way we could play today. I hope we will be able to be on stage tomorrow but I am not sure. But the guys are in a good mood and are working on recovering. Today we will sleep in a hotel and I'll try to make our heroes feel a little bit better."
