Due to events in Paris and the resultant issues with transport, border control and so on, Papa Roach have had to cancel the remainder of their tour dates. Skindred have been added to the London date (and possibly others), while Five Finger Death Punch continue as headliners.
For those who bought tickets on the strength of seeing Papa Roach, I would recommend checking the T&C’s of your ticket purchase. A formal announcement has not yet been made by Live Nation, but there could be a case for a refund on the basis that there’s a significant change relating to a headliner and it’s not a festival.
Statements from Papa Roach and FFDP follow:
Despite some significant challenges in Europe since the horrible events in Paris recently, we have continued on our tour and remained dedicated to our mission of providing you, the fans, the highest quality show in the safest possible show environment. As a result of new & increased travel/transportation restrictions and challenges, in some cities we are scheduled to play, we are unable to fulfill this promise, so we were forced to postpone those shows. We continue to face additional challenges but remain committed to finishing out the tour as best as we can. We are not a band that is used to postponing or canceling shows. In fact, we have always prided ourselves on showing up onstage no matter what, so these extenuating circumstances have been particularly challenging for us, as artists, given the high standard we place on ourselves to deliver for the fans.
Five Finger Death Punch will finish out the remaining European tour dates without Papa Roach and Devil You Know in Düsseldorf, Germany and at Wembley Arena in the UK. The lineup for Düsseldorf will include FFDP, Eskimo Callboy, Skindred and Nothing More. For Wembley it will be FFDP, Skindred, As Lions and The One Hundred. The show in Brussels will be postponed, but we will be back soon to play for our Belgian fans.
We appreciate everyone’s support as we continue to navigate these largely uncharted waters. Nothing gives us greater satisfaction than delivering the best show possible in the safest conditions.
