According to a recent post by Obituary guitarist Trevor Peres, police in the city of Cuenca, Ecuador stopped the band's concert taking place due to permit issues. The message reads as follows:

"Local police stopped Obituary's sound check in Cuenca, Ecuador after fans were waiting outside in the rain for three hours because of production delays. The show was billed for Obituary to start playing at 2:30 pm, but due to the PA company getting a late start in the morning Obituary didn't started to sound check until 3:30 pm. During the sound check the local police decided to make an appearance and stop the entire show from going on. Apparently, the local promoter did not have the proper permits to put on a live concert. We were never officially told what exactly the permits were for, but the show was canceled.

"Obituary was ready to put on a show but was stopped. We are very sorry for the fans who drove hours and purchased tickets to see the concert. We hope that this show can be made up to the fans who paid for tickets. As soon as Obituary knows any information we will post it right here."

You know easier said than done, but when you hit the road or plan to, especially outside your home country, you might wanna double check that all your bases are covered...1 of those bases is making sure the promoter is not some greedy, drunkin, tart who doesnt have his/her sh!t straight by not having the proper authority or paper work to conduct a show...alot of of bands assume that everythings all good, and this sh!t happends....hope fully the band has learned a lesson from this...obiturary is great live btw
