BLAZE, the British band led by former IRON MAIDEN/WOLFSBANE singer Blaze Bayley, have cancelled several European gigs in early September "due to late changes in the band line up resulting in insufficient time to prepare for these shows," according to a posting on the group's web site. The affected dates are as follows:Sep. 04 - Velo Rock Festival - Ostend, BEL
Sep. 11 - Raismes Festival - Raismes, FRA
Sep. 12 - La Locomotive - Paris, FRA A further statement will be released shortly along with dates for the remainder of the year. BLAZE are continuing to tour in support of their third album, "Blood & Belief", which was released in Europe in late April. The follow-up to 2002's "Tenth Dimension" was recorded at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, England with producer Andy Sneap.
