ROB ZOMBIE: More European Shows Canceled

Rob Zombie has issued the following update:

"I am sorry to say all [European] shows after June 26th had to be canceled. It is not because I am sick, it is not because we don't like you, it is not because of any of the rumors. Things have taken place that made us have to return to the U.S. after the 26th. We hate canceling and feel bad about this. It is a total drag on every level. We were looking forward to all these shows, will return and make it up to you." He added, "To clear up this new confusion. No, the [U.S.] shows in July are not canceled. Everything after June is fine."

Rob Zombie recently welcomed ex-MARILYN MANSON drummer Ginger Fish into the current lineup of his band, replacing Joey Jordison, who is leaving to return to SLIPKNOT. The Pulse Of Radio asked Zombie if he could hear a difference in the group's sound with the new man on the kit. "It's hard to describe how they're different," he said. "I mean, you know, Joey's a very, like, more of a power drummer I would say, you know, just a more bombastic sort of drummer, and Ginger's more of a, kind of like a groove-style drummer. It's kind of funny 'cause as with anything, either style seems to work really well with our music, so it's good."

Fish played his first shows with Zombie back in February while Jordison was touring Europe with his side band MURDERDOLLS. Jordison rejoined Zombie's band for some headlining U.K. dates before departing again.

Fans will get to see Fish on the road with Zombie this summer, when Zombie co-headlines a string of North American dates with SLAYER. The trek begins on July 20 in Reading, Pennsylvania, finishing up on August 6 in Seattle.
