U.K. extreme act Cradle of Filth announced the cancellation of the upcoming "28 Days Closer to Hell" North American tour with The Faceless, Decapitated and The Agonist in support of the latest release "The Manticore and Other Horrors."

The band cited immigration issues as the cause, a problem discussed in Metal Underground.com's interview with Dani Filth on February 6, 2013. The tour was set to begin on February 22, 2013 at Irving Plaza in New York. The official statement on the band's Facebook Page reads as follows:

"Cradle Of Filth are really sorry to tell all of their fans that their US tour '28 Days Closer to Hell' is going to have to be cancelled, due to US immigration issues beyond the band’s control.

"They have been desperately trying to solve these problems, but it has become evident they are not going to be resolved in time for the band to embark on a tour that starts next week.

"The band sincerely apologizes to all their fans and to the other acts on the tour and want to assure people they have made every effort possible to go ahead with the tour."

This happens more and more frequently I'm afraid. Hypocrisy's tour got cancelled a few years back due to the same b/s. Definitely sucks, because this was a pretty attractive lineup.
