Children Of Bodom have been forced to cancel their May 31st show in Quito, Ecuador. The promoter for the gig has issued the following statement:
"We are forced to cancel the concert of Children Of Bodom scheduled for Saturday May 31 in Quito, Ecuador.
The only reason is that Crystal Cable Car Station, a place where we had planned to do the show, despite meeting all the requirements requested by the Fire Department, has a ban for public events issued by the Municipality and Municipality Police. Prohibition was informed to us and other promoters (with events scheduled on the same stage ) and the administration of the place, just a few weeks ago.
We tried to find another place, but the current situation in Quito with respect to space for small concerts is scarce and a concern.
Refund of entries will take place from Tuesday, May 27th at Musicalisimo el Bosque (Quito) and San Marino Shopping (Guayaquil) from 10h00 to 20h00 from Monday to Sunday .
We regret this decision and hope that the new municipal administration meets its offerings in the cultural sphere, as the music unfolds not only in stadiums or arenas."
The band's tour schedule is currently as follows:
25 - São Paulo, Brazil - Carioca Club
27 - Buenos Aires, Argentina - Teatro Flores
29 - Santiago, Chile - Teatro Caupolican
1 - Bogota, Colombia - Las Vegas Nevada
4 - Monterrey, Mexico - Escena
6 - Mexico City, Mexico - Circo Volador
