We were a little wary of yesterday’s announcement that the ‘Death to All’ tour date in Dallas had been postponed, but hoped for the best, both that a new venue would be announced, and that the Atlanta show, also in trouble, would go on as planned. Today news comes that the Atlanta tour has also been postponed as well, with the organizers releasing an official statement:
“It is with regret that we have to postpone the Atlanta and Dallas dates for Death To All 2012, but there is a good side. Many things have led us to this point including very low ticket sales, issues with opening bands being available and several other factors. We are very sorry to all of the Death fans this has caused an inconvenience and wish things could have been different. We did everything in our power to avoid this situation, but in the end the choice had to be made. The good news is that we are working to re-schedule these dates for early next year, and if possible, add more dates surrounding them in new cities! Please hold on to your tickets, as they will be honored.”
So as much of a bummer as it is that metal fans couldn’t come through in the clutch to see an amazing tour right now, it looks like the Death To All tour will actually be an ongoing thing with additional tour dates coming in 2013. Maybe with a less crowded concert schedule, those in Dallas and Atlanta will do the right thing now that they’ve got at least a six-month advance warning this time. And at least the existing ticketholders in those cities will still get to see the tour eventually.
