German power metallers BRAINSTORM have posted the following message on their official web site:"Unfortunately, here's some bad news coming your way. Due to reasons beyond our control, we are not able to play the scheduled dates with SAXON in the U.K. as well as some other shows that are or have been (still) in the works for the next time. For all you people in South Europe and especially those that have seen some posted dates in the clubs and online already, there have also been some BRAINSTORM shows scheduled in Spain, France, Italy and Greece for end of October/ beginning of November, which we cannot play as well. We feel totally sorry as we would have loved to play the U.K. together with the mighty SAXON and South Europe again for all you fantastic Brainiacs out there. We will try to re-scedule or set up new shows as soon as possible, keep un surfing by we'll keep you updated. "On a more nicer note, I do not want to forget to mention that the shows in Allersdorf and Frankenthal some days ago have been really cool. We had our part of the fun, and pretty sure, you had yours! "Next coming up is the show on the 10 years Metal Blade Europe festival — MB RRROOOAAARRR, the upcoming Sunday, October 2nd 2005 in Stuttgart. Looking foward to see as many of you as possible. We have slightly changed the setlist to make this special event a little bit more special. This will be a very special evening for sure. Again, like already at the Gates of Metal (Sweden) and Sziget (Hungary) Shows, Ralf Langer will help us out on the bass parts on stage, as Andreas unfortunately can not join us this weekend due to his working duties."
