Sepultura Asian Tour Postponed Due to a Death
The tour was to launch in Indonesia, where the band last played two decades ago. The shows were to be the debut of new drummer Eloy Casagrande.
Sepultura broke the news via a lengthy post on their website, stating that promoter Shirazdeen Karim is so bereft by the death of his grandmother, who actually raised him, that he cannot properly attend to the tour dates while he manages his grief. She passed away on Jan. 16 from a heart attack.
