Anthrax cancel European tour yet again; drop off Wacken

Author Flavia Andrade - 20.4.2023

Anthrax have once again cancelled their plans to tour in Europe this summer, blaming logistical and scheduling issues.

Last year, Anthrax also cancelled their European touring plans due to inflation and the volatility of fuel prices, which made the costs way too high.

The band’s statement, issued on April 20, can be read below:

To all our friends in Europe… Due to a series of logistical and scheduling issues, we won’t be able to make it to Europe this summer for the festivals we were set to perform at. We’re really disappointed about this, and want you to know that a solid – and overdue – European tour is a priority for us.

Lots of exciting things are in the pipeline, so stay tuned.

Wacken Open Air festival also posted:

We sadly must announce today that the mighty Anthrax won’t make it to Europe and hence also not to the Holy Ground due to logistics.

Sure you know that WOA and Anthrax have a long-lasting friendship, so you can be certain that they will be back on stage before you know it!
