DEICIDE Update: Guitarists OWEN, SANTOLLA Confirmed For Santiago Show
Floridian death metallers DEICIDE will play in Chile this Friday (July 15) with Jack Owen (ex-CANNIBAL CORPSE) and Ralph Santolla (DEATH, ICED EARTH, SEBASTIAN BACH) on guitar supporting Glen Benton and Steve Asheim. The group's show will go ahead as planned despite objections from local church officials. Osvaldo Puccio, General Secretary of the Chilean Government, has issued a statement reaffirming the government's position that "in this country, no cultural expression will be censored or put on hold. We are the coalition and the goverment of liberty and tolerance, and we will take care of those things."
At press time, more than 2,000 tickets have been sold for the 3,500-capacity concert. DEICIDE are scheduled to arrive Santiago today, after two previous failed attempts to play in Chile.
