Godsmack recently delivered some unfortunate news: They have to cancel their South American tour.

The band made the dissapointing announcement via Instagram yesterday, citing a lack of ticket sales as the reason for the cancelation. "We are saddened by this as we've been trying for so long to make this work, but due to the lack of ticket sales, we simply can't find a way to fund this tour at this time," they said.

"Please know we've tried everything we could to make it work, but it has now gone beyond our control. We love and appreciate out fans and will remain optimistic that we will play for your country one day. Until then, our deepest apologies," Godsmack concluded in the statement.
