Machine Head's Robb Flynn has written to fans to confirm that the band's UK tour will go ahead as planned. This comes after a number of bands and artists have postponed or cancelled shows due to recent terrorist attacks in the United States.
The letter, pictured to the left, tells fans that the band will be playing on all advertised dates. "There's no place we'd rather be, than with our fans at a time like this," the letter says. "Music carries all of us thru good and bad times."
The band will not let "cowardly acts of terrorists" change their way of life.
The dates are as follows:
- 7 December - MANCHESTER Academy
- 8 December - LONDON Brixton Academy
- 10 December - WOLVERHAMPTON Civic Hall
- 11 December - GLASGOW Barrowlands
- 12 December - NOTTINGHAM Rock City
- 13 December - NEWPORT Centre
Here is the full text of the letter sent by Robb Flynn:
To all Machine Head-z
The events of Sept. 11th have affected everyone directly or indirectly.
We would like to re-affirm to you, the Fans, that Machine Head "will" be
playing on all dates advertised. There's no place we'd rather be, than with our fans at a time like this. Music carries all of us thru good and bad times. We won't let the cowardly acts of terrorists change our way of life, or stop us from doing what we do best...
Rocking your asses off !!!
