The Haunted Guitarist Drops Off Tour

The following message was posted on the Haunted's official website:

Guitarist Jensen has unfortunately been forced to leave the tour after the Lisboa show, due to urgent familiy matters back home in Sweden. The Haunted will however continue to do the remaining dates of the tour.

The Haunted wishes to once again urge people intending on seeing the show to come EARLY!! Tickets may say "The Haunted show time at 21/9pm" (approx one hour after doors) but usually it is 20.30/8.30pm...or even as early as 20.10/8.10pm!! (thats only 10 mins after doors, folks) So make sure to get there EARLY, in order to not miss the show!

Cataract Issues Tour Report

Cataract has issued the following report on their No Mercy Festivals:

11.03.2005, Dynamo Werk 21, Zurich (Swi)
