Behemoth Forced to Cancel 2013 Mayhem Festival Appearences


Really? Are you freakin’ kidding me? Do you know how excited I was to see this band live for the first time? At least they have a good reason for leaving the tour though. However, this also does affect a certain concert coming to Grand Rapids too!

Polish Black Metal group has officially cancelled their upcoming tour trek with Rockstar Mayhem Festival….even worse, their appearance here in Grand Rapids, MI at the Intersection on July 9th! Even though this is very disappointing news, they do have a good reason. Here is an official statement from the band:

“This must have been the most difficult decision we were forced to make in recent years. Behemoth is known for not canceling any shows or tours. But this is not something we can do whenwe are missing our driving force, the man behind the drums – Inferno. Unfortunately, he was hospitalized due to appendix surgery and it’s gonna take him few months to fully recover and get back to shape. We are trying to save selected European Festivals with a fill in drummer (Krimh,ex-Decapitated), but we won’t be risking doing a full-on prestigious tour like the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival without Inferno. Behemoth is a solid unit and any part of this unit missing makes us weaker, and that is not how we want to present our new material to our fans. Please, accept our apologies and be patient, we shall return to Europe (this fall) and US (early 2014) empowered and motivated as never before!”

From the quote, Behemoth frontman Nergal does plan to do a US TOUR early next year.

Feel better INFERNO!
