IN FLAMES Comment On ATHENS OPEN AIR Festival Cancellation

The remainder of the Athens Open Air festival in Athens, Greece was cancelled by the promoter earlier today after the festival's first day (Sunday, July 5) turned into a logistical — and presumably financial — nightmare.

IN FLAMES, one of the scheduled performers at today's festival, have posted the following comment on their official web site:

"We are really sorry to inform you that tonight's show in Athens (Greece) is canceled. We were really looking forward to do this show, as we have not played here since 2000.

"It's not IN FLAMES that cancels this show, it's definitely beyond our control, but we apologize to all of you. We do not know the reason yet to why the promoter canceled this festival, but we will look into it.

"We traveled all this way to play for you and again we truly apologize and hope to be back a.s.a.p. Thanks for understanding!"
