W:O:A 2016: Benediction and The Beards cancel Wacken performances

We sadly have to announce two cancellations for Wacken Open Air 2016. Both Benediction and The Beards have to deal with serious problems and can't attend our event.

The statement from Benediction:
There is no easy way to say this. Benediction are having to cancel our shows. The reasons are very private and personal and we feel should not be plastered all over social media sites. Please be assured that this decision has not been got to lightly and is unavoidable presently. We apologise to all our fans, promoters, festivals and our booking agent M.A.D. These cancellations are not connected to any other bands our boys are in, as we say this is a personal situation. Benediction will be back when we can be. Sorry and thank you for hopefully understanding. Benediction do not cancel shows without good reason.
