The word on the internet grapevine is that Sonisphere Festival 2012 has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Yes, this sucks. We love Sonisphere a lot and we love it in the present tense.

We’ve had a few confirmations from people linked to the festival but there’s no official word from the festival promoters, Kilimanjaro as of yet. We understand that an official statement will be made tomorrow, so hold tight.

You’ve read the title? Right. That’s the gist of the story. Black Sabbath will no longer be performing any of their previously announced European tour dates, with the exception of Download Festival 2012. In place of the majority of the cancelled shows, an ‘Ozzy & Friends’ gathering (including Geezer Butler, Zakk Wylde, Slash, and other, as-yet-unnanounced special guests) will fill in Black Sabbath’s place.

We hate to be the bearer of bad news. Due to an unforseen and urgent family matter, The Ghost OF A Thousand have been forced to cancel their headlining slot on the Redbull Bedroom Jam Stage on the Saturday night of this year’s Download Festival. And to make matters even more depressing, if you were hoping of catching the Brighton five-piece at the Alexisonfire show at The Borderline in London tonight, then you’re also in for some diasppointment – the band have had to cancel their support slot there too.

Bullet For My Valentine

Well, it appears that our reports from earlier this week that Bullet For My Valentine are to join the ever-swelling Sonisphere bill has been confirmed in an official announcement from the festival organisers – however, it also seems that anyone heading to Prestatyn next month hoping to catch the Welsh four-piece are about to get a serious dose of disappointment. BFMV have blown out their headline spot inaugural Hammerfest in order to join Metallica at Knebworth.

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!
