In Flames have scrapped their immediate U.S. shows, including their stint on the “Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival” and their previously planned off-dates, due to terminal illness in the family. The following statement was issued on the matter:
“It is with huge regret that today with immediate effect In Flames must cancel their current US shows as part of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival and their own US Headline shows. But due to a serious terminal illness of one 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 Rockstar Mayhem Festival 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
