In Flames tour cancelled

In Flames have cancelled their UK and Ireland tour, including the Mandella Hall gig. Stated reason is that guitarist Jesper Stromblad is in rehab and bassist Peter Iwers is about to become a father.

Refunds are available from original point of purchase.

Below is the statement from the band:

We are very sad to announce that the UK & Ireland tour will not happen as planned. As you already know, Jesper is currently at an alcohol rehabilitation clinic and is taking some time off to get better. Peter is about to become a dad. We obviously knew about Peter becoming a dad again and originally planned to have a replacement bassist, but with the recent events surrounding Jesper we simply feel that it is not fair on the fans to see a completely different line up, which in our eyes is not In Flames. Again, sorry to make any UK & Irish fans disappointed and we hope to make it up to you very soon! - In Flames
