Sadly another to add to the list of cancelations because of COVID-19. And this now means the entire METAL GALAXY WORLD TOUR in ASIA has been postponed or cancelled.
BABYMETAL were supposed to perform on Saturday, May 16th at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena (which would have been a great photo!). This would have been a reencounter with DragonForce (who helped create Road of Resistance) and a possible first ever photograph with Iron Maiden. This was also going to be BABYMETAL’s first every performance in the Philippines (among other countries).
The organizers also mention that it’s clear they will try and reorganize this festival, as it was supposed to be the last.
This is the full organizers statement (emphasis mine):
It is with great regret and a heavy heart that we must announce the cancellation of PULP SUMMER SLAM XX. It was indeed a proud moment to have successfully booked IRON MAIDEN, one of the great Heavy Metal legends of all time, to headline the festival’s final opus and to have this at the premier indoor arena in the Philippines, along with a number of our festival’s historical Heavy Metal favorites as well as the debut performance of BABYMETAL and KING810.
We are uncertain at this time if we will pursue the 20th and final installment of PULP SUMMER SLAM at some point in the future, so for now we will work with SM Tickets and AirAsia RedTix to begin the refund process. Please follow PULP Live World and PULP SUMMER SLAM’s social media pages for details.
We thank you for your devotion to PULP SUMMER SLAM and for loving Heavy Metal.
These are the guides shared by the organizers for refunds:
