BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE Cancels Seattle, Canada Dates

According to Kerrang.com, Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE have cancelled the remaining shows on their current North American tour in order to fly home to support their bassist/backing vocalist Jason "Jay" James whose daughter has been hospitalized.

"Jay had a call [Friday] night about his little girl," BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE guitarist/vocalist Matt Tuck told BLABBERMOUTH.NET in an exclusive interview this past Saturday (April 12). "She's very, very ill she's in the hospital. I'm not gonna go into too much detail 'cause that's obviously his personal stuff but she's very ill and he had to fly home straight away, which obviously is the correct thing to do, and he wants to be there by her bedside and hopefully she's gonna pull through. He didn't have any choice he had to go home and that was totally fine with us."

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE played an abbreviated set in San Jose on Saturday and Sacramento on Sunday with the band's guitar tech Kevin filling in for James.


April 15 - WaMu Center, Seattle, WA
April 17 - PNE, Vancouver, BC
April 19 - Stampede Corral, Calgary, AB
April 21 - Brand Center, Regina, SK
April 22 - Northlands AgriCom, Edmonton, AB

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE will take a couple of weeks off before embarking on a tour of Australia and New Zealand in early May.

Jukka Penttinen from Get In The Pit TV conducted an interview with Jason "Jay" James on February 22, 2008 at Tavastia club in Helsinki, Finland. Watch the eight-minute clip below.
