The tour's carrying on without them, though.



Lamb Of God have dropped off the remaining dates of their European tour with Children Of Bodom and Sylosis due to security concerns.

In a statement, they said: "We have decided against putting our fans, our crew and ourselves in this position night after night."

Children Of Bodom responded with a message of their own, stating that they want to finish their tour with Sylosis.

The tour's promoter in Germany has cancelled the dates in their country, meaning the remaining dates look like this:

23 - LAUSANNE Les Docks
24 - MILAN Alcatraz
25 - 28 - SHOWS TBC

09 - TAMPERE Tähtiareena
10 - SEINAJOKI 
Rytmikorjaamo
11 - JYVASKYLA Paviljonki
12 - OULU SuperPark Arena

You can read both bands' messages to fans below.

Lamb Of God:
"Due to concerns brought to our attention by the venue security team yesterday in Tilburg - and continued general concerns across Europe - we have decided against putting our fans, our crew and ourselves in this position night after night and will be canceling the remainder of our performances in Europe. This is a decision we are making on behalf of the fans, our crew, and our band, as well as the well-being of everyone's family, friends and loved ones at home. Stay safe, and we will see you very soon."

Children Of Bodom:
"Lamb of God has chosen to leave the European tour due to security concerns in Europe. Our team has been working very hard to make all of the remaining shows happen. WE WANT TO, AND HAVE DECIDED TO, CONTINUE ON THE ROAD AND PLAY THE REST OF THE TOUR. Sylosis also will be joining us on their scheduled appearances. Here is what we know so far.

Unfortunately the promoter has decided to move forward and cancel tonight's show in Oberhausen, Germany, and the additional shows in Germany."
