THERION: Tempe Show Cancelled

Sweden's THERION were forced to cancel tonight's [Sept. 23] scheduled concert in Tempe, Arizona. The group's official statement on the matter reads as follows:

"The tour bus had a major break down this night and the engine is being repaired during the night and noon. Unfortunatly this means that the band does not stand a chance to reach Tempe in time to set up and do the show. The bus company has been very helpful and offered to fly the band in, but due to the majority of the equipment being purchased in USA for this tour, they are not in appropriate boxes that would survive a flight and it's too late to rent the stuff in Tempe or Phoenix. The band is grateful for the offer, but see no realistic option to perform the show and have no other choice than cancelling the show. Sorry...

"There will be no problems to reach Santa Ana in time [for Saturday's show], so no worries there."
