Ulver Cancel Planned Concerts

2014-03-04 by Kyle Ward STAFF | 15 Comments
Norwegian band Ulver has been forced to withdraw from the band's two upcoming shows in
Moscow, Russia and Baltimore, Maryland's much-anticipated festival Maryland Deathfest,
citing health concerns. The band state on their official website:

"We regret to inform you that for the second time in our live-career we are obliged to
cancel our most imminent shows. This includes the announced concert in Moscow (with
orchestra) in April as well as the Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore in May. We are truly
sorry for the inconvenience and/or disappointment this may be for some, but the time is
simply not right for us.

We just got home from a shorter tour of Europe and have been advised by the doctors to take
it easy, for the time being, due to unexpected health concerns. We feel that it would be
irresponsible to proceed with these big shows now that visas and flights etc. are about to
go through and high costs are about to be incurred on promoter's end – as we are
simultaneously undergoing medicals, waiting for verdicts etc. – not quite knowing if things
will be better or worse by the time these concerts would have taken place.

Instead of a potential last minute pullout we have decided to withdraw now – before any real
damage is done – and focus on getting out of the woods. We apologize to both of the
promoters and the people who were looking forward to these concerts. Cross our fingers and
hope to return at a later stage."

Sucks for those going to MDF. The concert in Moscow would have been awesome as well with a full orchestra.

I highly, highly doubt they would have but if they did it would have been amazing.
