LEAVES’ EYES and ATROCITY‘s 2012 South American tour, which was scheduled to take place in early July, has been canceled. According to a statement from the Darkdimensions agency, the trek had to be called off because one of the promoters “couldn’t fulfill the needed requirements, which sadly made it not possible for the tour to happen this time as the shows were connected to each other. We are working for the tour to be rescheduled in 2013.”
Affected tour dates:
July 03 – San Jose, Costa Rica – La Aduana
July 05 – Quito, Ecuador – Teatro Nacional Benjamin Carrion
July 07 – Buenes Aires, Argentina – The Roxy Live
July 08 – Sao Paulo, Brazil – Carioca Club
Commented LEAVES’ EYES‘ frontwoman Liv Kristine: “With great sadness, we have to announce that the planned shows in July in Latin America can not take place. We are really disappointed that we can’t come over and play for all of our Latin American fans and we are working hard at rescheduling the tour for 2013. I’m so sad about this. Lots of love to our Latin America fans and friends.”
