Kamelot Cancel U.S. Tour
Oliver Reetz / Thomas Skogan / Simone
"We all decided that we do not feel right about doing the North American tour as anything less than a 100% Kamelot Experience. We appreciate that many fans have waited more than 2 years for new material and to see us perform together," the band said in statement. "Our new album, 'Poetry for the Poisoned' represents a labor of love from us, and to present it at anything less than full strength seems a disservice to all involved."
They continued, "Though we will suffer financial losses on this late hour cancellation, we still feel it's the right decision for us as a band to make -- we regret disappointing all those who worked so hard to shape this tour, and especially those fans who were still so willing to come through and support us despite Roy's absence. We are humbled by that type of support, and we sincerely hope that our return in full form Kamelot strength will be more reward for your unwavering loyalty!"
Poetry for the Poisoned' is due out Sept. 14
