CHILDREN OF BODOM Forced To Cancel Ruisrock Festival
After previously revealing that frontman Alexi Laiho had been hospitalized in Norway, Children Of Bodom has now announced the band is forced to cancel the previously scheduled appearance at the Ruisrock festival. Children of Bodom comments:
“This is not an easy letter for us to write. Alexi is suffering from a serious infection. He is still in hospital in Oslo under supervision of the doctors and we don’t know yet when they will release him.
“We have no choice other than canceling Ruisrock in Turku on Saturday as well. This is a very bitter pill for us to swallow. We had decided to do only two festivals in our homeland this summer to make it real special, and now this.
“We hope that we will be able to make up for this very soon. To all our fans who had been looking forward to rock with us at Ruisrock this weekend, take our apologies and enjoy the festival. In our spirits, we will be there, too.”
