KAMELOT and DRAGONFORCE were caught up in the civil unrest in Baltimore on Monday evening (April 27) as they were getting ready to hit the stage for the first show of their joint North American tour.
The Soundstage in Baltimore where the two bands were meant to be playing was two blocks away from the rioting, but the violence was getting ever closer.
DRAGONFORCE guitarist Herman Li said;" We thought it was a little weird that all the local shops were closed. In fact, the only place open was the venue with a massive queue of fans still trying to get in. As we were warming up, ready to go onstage, we heard a state of emergency was declared and the show immediately postponed due to the safety of the fans."
The KAMELOT/DRAGONFORCE show has been rescheduled for today (Thursday, April 30), with doors opening early at 6 p.m. and the end of the show being 10 p.m. due to the citywide curfew imposed by the authorities for the entire week.
All tickets purchased for the original show are valid.
