The communists in the Chinese government have decided that British extreme metallers Cradle of Filth are unsuitable for performance on the mainland. The ban does not, however, apply to the island territory of Hong Kong. The band has moved the Chinese date of their current tour to a venue (Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre) where it is unlikely they will be arrested and never heard from again. The date (April 30th) has not changed.
The original post from the band about this can be read here:
Nothing applies to Hong Kong.

China is polluted enough as is.
Cradle's early works are great though
The comments are damn awkward on here.
Don't care for Cradle so they can get banned in Puerto Rico for all I care.
Please be advised that the upcoming CRADLE OF FILTH dates are being cancelled due to immigration issues. The band cannot gain entry into the Country at this time.
