posted in the festival news category
Due to "contractual differences," British black metal pioneers Venom have cancelled their appearance at High Voltage, the U.K.'s new rock festival, which is scheduled to take place July 24-25, 2010 at Victoria Park in London, U.K.
Commented the band's tour manager: "We announced the concert in February in good faith as we were informed that everything had been agreed in principle, although this is now clearly not the case.
"The band are very disappointed not to be playing at the festival, although their management are now looking at a possible replacement show in the U.K. for later this year.
"The band and management would like to apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused to any of their fans.
"Anyone who bought a ticket for the festival especially to see Venom, and would now prefer to get a refund, should contact the ticket outlet where they purchased the ticket."
