(CelebrityAccess) — Progressive metal funk band Kings X announced the cancellation of the entirety of their upcoming European tour due to a “family emergency.”
Affected dates include the band’s scheduled appearance at the Veruno Prog Rock Festival in Italy on Sept. 6th.
“We are truly heartbroken that we will not be able to see all of our European fans, as we have been clamoring for these dates since we announced them. We would like to let the fans and all those concerned that the band is okay. Please respect the band’s privacy and please give us some time. We are doing everything in our power to reschedule the tour for 2020.”
The band will provide updates on rescheduled dates in the near future and tickets will remain valid for the new dates or refunds can be obtained from the point of sale, a rep for the band said.
News of the postponed tour comes as Kings X was putting the finishing touches on a new studio album, the band’s first since 2008’s XV.
The band’s North American dates, starting with a performance at the Citadel Music Hall in Indianapolis on Oct. 31st, are still a go at time of publication.
