Following news of the cancellation of the European leg of Gwar's "Return of the World Maggot" Tour in January, Oderus Urungus has taken to Twitter to vent some of his disgust at the promoters and other factors that gave rise to the cancellation. While stressing his love for the die-hard European Gwar fans, he hits out at the reasons behind it all on @TheRealOderus. Below are some excerpts and a screen shot. Follow Oderus' Tweets at this location.

Of all the American (dual citizenship w/ Antarctica) bands that tour there, we probably have the most appreciation for European culture.

Getting disturbing reports of zero promotion and tickets still on sale...the sad part is we LOVE YOU EUROPE. We really miss you.

Believe me, if we had the money, we would, we have done it before!

And I will fucking go after it, this whole fucking thing pisses me off so bad, and I am just looking for a neck to wrap my hands around.

For now our focus must be on making sure that all of those fans who bought tickets get their money back. If you don't, tell me DIRECTLY.

This is but another bump in the road for the mighty GWAR! It shall not hinder nor dissuade us in our unholy quest...whatever that is.

It breaks my black heart that they shall be deprived of this...BUT

I know they wanted to say goodbye to Flattus. really, our fans in Europe are some of the most fanatical and loyal I have ever known.

Really annoyed about this. I just came to get 3 tickets and it's been pulled - I'm sure ther must be loads more people like me that were waiting to get xmas paid for and sorted before buying tickets. I should stress that I'm not annoyed with GWAR at all. Promoters pulling gigs isn't on.
