MANOWAR has released the following statement:
"We regrettably inform you that, due to unsolvable technical issues provided to the band in the last minute, MANOWAR is unable to perform their previously scheduled shows in Barcelona and Madrid on October 13 and 14.
"All fans planning to attend those shows are encouraged to seek a full refund from the point of sale.
"'The Lord Of Steel' world tour continues in Paris, France on Tuesday, October 16, 2012."
The retail edition of MANOWAR's twelfth studio album, "The Lord Of Steel", originally scheduled for September 28, will now hit the stores on October 19 on CD, limited-edition picture vinyl and as digital album.
"The Lord Of Steel" was made available earlier this summer as a limited-edition pre-release as the "Hammer Edition" in collaboration with U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine.
The retail edition of "The Lord Of Steel" will feature different mixes and mastering, an additional song, spectacular new art by fantasy artist Ken Kelly, and other surprises.
