It is with deep regret that RW Entertainment must announce that LAMB OF GOD have been forced to withdraw from their scheduled appearance at Studio in Auckland on Wednesday March 7th due to a domestic emergency affecting the band. The band and their management have issued their own concise cancellation statement, as follows:
“Lamb of God have been forced to cancel their shows scheduled for March 7th in Auckland, New Zealand and March 9th in Anchorage, Alaska, due to a medical emergency regarding a family member. The band intends to make up both shows during the Resolution tour cycle.”
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and UNEARTH will now perform a co-headlining substitute show at the same venue, with support from original Lamb of God local openers CRIPPLE MR ONION, and scheduled afterparty acts STATE OF INTEGRITY and IN DREAD RESPONSE. Both The Black Dahlia Murder and Unearth will perform extended sets to compensate for the absence of Lamb of God. Doors for this show will open at 7pm, as per the Lamb of God show and entry will again be restricted to those aged 18 and over. Entry to the substitute show is valid for any original Lamb of God ticket-holder. There will also be door sales available to the substitute show.
All ticket holders will receive an automatic $30 refund on their original ticket. Anyone requesting a full refund must do so by midday on Sunday March 11th and cannot use their ticket to attend the substitute show. Refunds will not be processed any earlier than Monday March 12th. Any questions regarding refunds can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The scheduled signing and meet and greet sessions for Lamb of God have also been cancelled, although winners of the various competitions promoted by RW Entertainment and their media partners will still have their CD prize packs honoured and sent out.
Everyone involved in the RW Entertainment family is beyond devastated that this has happened at the eleventh hour, with such a small amount of notice. Our deepest sympathies are with Lamb of God at this, their time of need. We hope to see as many of you as possible turn out in big numbers to support The Black Dahlia Murder and Unearth, who always deliver live shows of unparalleled intensity, and will no doubt do a fine job of making up for Lamb of God’s late withdrawal.
While this situation was no-one’s fault, and simply one of those unfortunate turns in life that catches everyone off-guard, RW Entertainment would sincerely like to extend their deepest apologies to the many fans who had bought tickets (a lot of tickets!) to the show and who have shown such massive support and excitement during the whole time leading up to it. In particular, we want to acknowledge those people who were due to travel from out of town for this show. We know how great an inconvenience this must be, and can only hope that the substitute show we have managed to pull together slakes everyone’s thirst for pure American heavy metal until such time as Lamb of God and ourselves work again.
