Holland's BAROEG OPEN AIR Festival Cancelled

June 18, 2007

According to a posting on the LEGION OF THE DAMNED web site, the Baroeg Open Air festival, which was scheduled to take place August 26 at Baroeg in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, has been cancelled. "Due to an incident that happened a few weeks ago, Baroeg has to close its doors for the upcoming three months, which means Baroeg Open Air is not able to take place!" the band writes.

In addition to LEGION OF THE DAMNED, Baroeg Open Air was slated to include performances by MADBALL, CULT OF LUNA, CORVUS CORAX, DEADLINE, PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT, and THANATOS, among others.

LEGION OF THE DAMNED's latest CD, "Sons of the Jackal", entered the German national album chart at position No. 54 back in January. The follow-up to 2006's "Malevolent Rapture" was recorded at Stage One studio in B├╝hne, Germany with producer Andy Classen.

LEGION OF THE DAMNED was one of the support acts on the recent European co-headlining tour featuring Germany's KREATOR and Switzerland's CELTIC FROST.
