Slipknot, their management, and our entire staff sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this has caused customers who have been looking forward to the festival.
This has been speculated for a while among fans, and became much closer to being a reality after the Indonesian government suspended the promoters license yesterday.
This is a sad situation, especially since this is the first Asian tour. Hopefully it can be rescheduled in the near future.
It’s also the 2nd ever cancellation for BABYMETAL, after last year’s Hong Kong festival cancelation, and is (hopefully) the lowest point of a World Tour with so many problems (outside of BABYMETAL’s control). Truly sad to see their largest world tour plagued with so many problems cause by nature.
