Reactivated San Francisco Bay Area thrashers FORBIDDEN have issued the following statement regarding tonight’s show in Lima, Peru:
“It breaks our hearts that we have to inform the FORBIDDEN fans of Lima that we can not make tonight’s gig at Auditorio Derrama Magisterial.
“Acido Promotions GmbH booked our tour for South America but did not have our travel plans in order which has caused us to miss our shows in South America. We were able to reschedule all the shows directly with the promoters with the exception of our Lima, Peru show, which we found impossible to reschedule and must cancel with deep regret.
“Acido Promotions brought FORBIDDEN out to South America based on lies and deceit and abandoned us owing FORBIDDEN and all the South American promoters money.
“We want to make this clear that this is not the fault of the other promoters of South America. As a matter of fact, after being abandoned by Acido Promotions GmbH at the Santiago airport, it was Chargola Productions in Chile who came to our rescue and helped us reschedule the show for the people in Santiago which was an amazing show after all! We would also like to thank ICARUS MUSIC in Buenos Aires for coming to our rescue and made the show happen in Buenos Aires which was another success.
“Despite great effort from Icarus in Peru, there is no way to make our gig in Lima this time. We will make it up to our fans as soon as we possibly can. We are all gutted about missing what would have been such an amazing gig.”
FORBIDDEN 2010 features Russ Anderson on vocals, Craig Locicero on guitar, Steve Smyth on guitar, Matt Camacho on bass and Mark Hernandez on drums.
