Possessed Forced To Cancel Show In Bogota, Colombia

American death metal pioneers Possessed have announced that they have been forced to cancel their upcoming show in Bogota, Colombia, which was scheduled for November 12th. A statement from the band reads as follows:

"On an extremely personal level; We (Possessed) have been very much looking forward to playing for you all out in Colombia. We were told by the promoters over and over that they would fly us out there. To this day no tickets have been purchased by Ivan (Invoking Productions). This was supposed to be all settled by Nov 1st. So while Invoking Productions has no intentions of actually bringing Possessed out there on November 12th, they are still promoting this show as a "Possessed" show and trying to fool you into buying these tickets.

"To our fans; we apologize. We (Possessed) did everything in our power to come out and play this show for you all. In preparation for this show, we are all actually in Los Angeles this minute practicing for this show and have even made special t-shirts for this Colombian November 12th show. We are really disappointed that this is not going to happen the way it was supposed to, since the whole band was really excited to go to Colombia to give you a killer show."

Why can't this type of bad luck fall on a CRAPPY band? Possessed is an excellent metal band, so I hate to see that they have to go through this kind of stuff. When are we going to hear about booking mishaps for bands like jfac and bmth? Or that said bands get collectively eaten by grizzly bears?
