Swedish death metal group In Flames has cancelled Monday's show at Amos' Southend due to a family illness. The band was in the midst of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival with Disturbed, Godsmack, Megadeth, Machinehead and others. This means it will also not be on the bill Wednesday, August 3 in Raleigh when Mayhem hits the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek.
The band released the following statement on its website Sunday afternoon:
It is with huge regret that today with immediate effect, In Flames must cancel their current US shows as part of the Mayhem tour and their own US headline shows. But due to a serious terminal illness of one of the band's immediate family members they feel they have no option.
"We have had the most amazing and fun times as part of the Mayhem tour and we are truly grateful for all the support the whole festival has shown. We will be back at the start of 2012. Once again, our apologies."
Refunds will be issued for tickets to the Amos' show.
