In Flames cancel UK & Ireland tourdates

inflames 2008 nuclear blast thrash hits

Swedish metal gurus In Flames have been forced to cancel their upcoming April/May tourdates for the UK and Ireland with Cancer Bats.

UPDATE! Cancer Bats are still intending on coming over here and playing some shows though. We’re guessing it’s because their flights are booked and their lives have been put on hold, they may as well get over here and cause some carnage!

In Flames broke the news via their MySpace:

“We are very sad to announce that the UK & Ireland tour will not happen as planned.
As you already know, Jesper is currently at an alcohol rehabilitation clinic and is taking some time off to get better. Peter is about to become a dad. We obviously knew about Peter becoming a dad and originally planned to have a replacement bassist, but with the recent events surrounding Jesper we simply feel that it is not fair on the fans to see a completely different line up, which in our eyes is not In Flames.
Again, sorry to make any UK & Irish fans disappointed and we hope to make it up to you very soon!
