GWAR Cancel European Tour, Claim They ‘Can’t Afford’ to Play

FilmMagic

This year ended on a bum note for GWAR, what with the November death of guitarist Cory Smoot, aka Flattus Maximus, and 2012 isn’t shaping up to be much better. Earlier today, the band announced the cancellation of its 2012 European tour, citing financial troubles for the scrapped dates.

“Ticket sales were slow so promoters started pulling the plug on shows,” reads a post on the group’s Facebook page. “Finally we had so many blow-outs that we had no choice but to cancel the whole thing. We can’t afford to pay to play Europe, after all we aren’t f—ing tourists!”

The costumed rockers said they were “extremely disappointed” and “very sorry” for cancelling the trek, which was to have begun next month.

“I know everybody over there wanted to say goodbye to Flattus in a way that a only a GWAR show could provide, and we were really looking forward to sharing that with you guys,” the post reads.

Alas, the announcement ends on a positive note, as the Virginia shock rockers promise future overseas triumphs.

“Very, very bummed… but GWAR still lives, and will return to reap a bloody vengeance too terrible to comprehend,” it read.
