As you most likely know by now, Chimaira have cancelled their shows scheduled for Belfast's Stiff Kitten and Dublin's Academy on 2 and 3 October respectively.
A statement posted on the MCD website simply says: Due to an acute illness, we must cancel our upcoming UK tour. The band was really looking forward to the shows especially coming off a successful run in the US as part of the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. Alas, health comes first, as it should for us all. Sorry to those who planned on attending, but as the Governor of California once said, 'we'll be back'. or something like that.
It's all a bit mysterious. There is no statement on the band's website, and their latest Facebook update - posted after the cancellation announcement - shows all band members apparently fit and healthy on their US tour!
There also don't seem to be any plans to reschedule, as MCD are advising those with tickets to get refunds from the point of purchase.
