Due to schedule conflict, Philip H. Anselmo and The Illegals had to cancel their show at MetalDays. The band is already confirmed for MetalDays 2020 so we are looking forward to see them next year! Please read the official statement below.
Philip H. Anselmo states:
To all the fans and directly to the organizers of the Metal Days festival in Slovenia, it must be announced that I will not be able to make the show. There was a scheduling conflict that made it impossible for me & The Illegals to be there. And I must add, not only is this a loss for the awesome Slovenian fans, but it’s our loss, too! Not being able to play disappoints me greatly, as I love this festival – it’s unique and beautiful and I am always treated well by the event-throwers. I hope all concerned will find it in their hearts to forgive this scheduling mistake, so we would be looking forward to play Metaldays in 2020.
But what a replacement!!! Rotting Christ is one of the most wanted bands by MetalDays trusty visitors, so having them jumping in last minute is just beyond words.
Rotting Christ are known for their intense live performances and organizers don’t expect anything less on the 24th of July.
Theory (New Forces Stage) had to cancel as well. Please read the official statement below.
Our singer and his wife are having a baby and the date has been set to right around the time when we are supposed to go to Slovenia to play. As you can imagine he is anxious that he will miss out on the birth and he has expressed a wish to cancel the concert if possible.
This is of course most unfortunate since we have all been looking forward to play at Metaldays and we hate to cause you and your team, and the visitors inconvenience for backing out. Let us stress that we of course did not know about this when we agreed to play the concert.
Slovenian finest, Inmate, will take their slot. Support them by getting festival tickets directly from them.
Last but not least, Serbian Hardcore Legends Ritam Nereda are returning to MetalDays. Visitors from the Balkan Region were asking this for years.
We wish you a very Metal weekend. See you all at MetalDays!
PS: Festival tickets and tickets for the 24th of July are available here.
