VOLBEAT cancelled last night’s concert in Belfast, Ireland after performing just one song.
The band opened the show with “Pelvis on Fire,” but towards the end of the song, frontman Michael Poulsen walked offstage.
About 10 minutes later, the group tried again, but also shut things down, with the announcement being eventually made that show had been cancelled.
Later on, band issued the statement regarding the show cancellation:
“We in VOLBEAT want to extend our most heartfelt apologies for having to cancel tonight’s show in Belfast. As many of you know, Michael has been having some throat issues and we ran into multiple technical issues on stage that prevented the band from being able to hear each other play.
Statement continues: “While he has mostly recovered his voice at this point, it was decided that had he continued to play the show this way he would have risked blowing out his voice again and having to cancel even more shows. We’re gutted that we weren’t able to perform for you tonight, but we will be back to reschedule the show as soon as we possibly can.”
