Band blame 'contractual breaches' for dates being shelved
POD have been forced to cancel their entire European tour, which was scheduled to have included two dates in the UK.
The band were due to play Birmingham HMV Institute on June 16 and London‘s HMV Forum on June 17, but have now cancelled both dates. Tickets can be refunded from point of purchase.
The Christian rockers have posted an official statement, which reads:”POD is being forced to postpone their May and June European touring plans due a contractual breach by the organizing tour promoter. We will be working with different promoters to return to Europe in the autumn with specific announcements coming soon.”
The cancellation marks a troubled few weeks for the band, who announced last month that they had begun legal proceedings against their record label INO Records, claiming the label has failed to pay them $400,000 (£250,000) promised as an advance.
POD are currently writing the follow-up to their 2008 album ‘When Angels And Serpents Dance’.
