It is a sad day in the metal community as Lamb of God and Dethklok are forced to cancel their upcoming tour that was slated to start in Seattle, WA. Even worse, they were scheduled to play here in Grand Rapids, MI at the Delta Plex!

Lamb of God posted the latest news on their website:

Due to the continued incarceration of LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the band’s co-headline tour with Dethklok scheduled to begin August 1st in Seattle is being cancelled. The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randy’s release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour. Upon Randy’s release, it is the band’s intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.

LAMB OF GOD wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour. Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no LAMB OF GOD.

Reason for cancellation? Randy Blythe is still in jail for reasons of manslaughter at a Czech venue. So you really can’t have a tour without the lead singer!

The band does plan to announce a new tour following the cancellation of this one for this upcoming fall. Dethklok does plan to announce a tour as well.

This comes as a major bummer to metal fans and ticket buyers everywhere! I was so stoked for this show!
