The Metal World just received the news that the famed ProgPower USA Festival for 2020 had been cancelled (discussed HERE) and now, the holiday weekend ends with similar news from the Eluveitie Camp about their scheduled Fall tour. Read on down below for the bands statement as secured from their Facebook Page.
Dear fellow metalheads, You all have probably already suspected it – and it is with a heavy and bleeding heart that we have to confirm your apprehension: Due to the current covid-19 pandemic we are now forced to cancel our upcoming North American tour.

The only thing we can sincerely promise you is that we won’t give up, we won’t leave you hanging and that we will get a new North American tour up as soon as it will be possible again! And of course we’ll keep you posted on this!
And until that day we’ll do our very best to still give you as much as we can through the distance! If you’re not doing it already, please check our official social media channels as well as those of our particular band members – you’ll find a lot of worth watching stuff! We’re with you all!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’d be lying if I said that this news surprises me but it doesn’t. I’d also be lying if I said I had more to add to the mix but I don’t. I’m only waiting on the next cancellation to be announced so I can share it with you all. Some things about this tour that make the cancellation even worse was that it was the means to pick up dates by both Insomnium and Infected Rain whose other runs were scrapped based on this virus. Now its important to know that its not only disrupting all of the shows but also mega events like the annual Auto Show which was cancelled this weekend as well (interested folks can read about that by clicking HERE). This has been a terrible year for so many and as I close this alert up, I hope that it finds anyone reading our words and updates in the very best possible health. We’re fine of course and just being careful. You should be doing the same. See you next time.
