Unfortunately Cradle Of Filth have had to cancel the first date of their South American tour which was due to take place in Ecuador on Friday night. Dani Filth has made this statement about the cancellation:
Everyone involved with the band, and especially the band themselves are deeply distressed over the cancellation of our show in Ecuador this Friday. This is the second time we have had to pull out of a concert in Ecuador (the last cancellation being due to airport closure as we were circling the runway!).
Unfortunately this time has been due to several reasons, including severe weather conditions stranding half the band’s crew, deep ‘contractual’ problems, plus flight-booking f**k-ups. It is a regrettable situation to be in, but unfortunately an impossible one at this particular time to rectify.
Our sincere apologies go out to all the fans we have disappointed by this very well thought out decision, the band feeling even worse about it as we are all stuck in cold, redundant limbo for two days.
As for the rest of our South American tour, all other shows are definitely on, the first being on the twelfth at the Teatro Metropol, in Bogotá, Colombia, this very Sunday. We can’t wait, though once again, I’d like to apologise to all our loyal, disappointed fans in Ecuador. We are so pissed off that this has had to happen.
All the very best,
A deeply annoyed Dani Filth.
Fans who had bought tickets for the gig should contact the promoter to receive a refund.
