Thrash band Flotsam and Jetsam have cancelled their upcoming tour because of a mix of low ticket gross sales and logistical points. In line with an announcement from Flotsam and Jetsam, the tour was an actual ache to get collectively because of transportation and crew shortages. This was made worse when a “an necessary crew member” cancelled on the band on the final minute, and sadly the demise knell was low ticket gross sales.
“We had a logistical nightmare even making an attempt to safe transportation and crew for this brief run,” stated Flotsam and Jetsam. “There are such a lot of nice bands on the highway proper now that it’s making touring very troublesome in what’s a really saturated market.
“We had an necessary crew member bail on the tour on the final minute for undisclosed causes, however the ultimate straw was discovering out that the ticket gross sales have been poor. We positively don’t need promoters to lose cash reserving our band, so we’ll reschedule at a time that makes extra sense for them. We apologize to the followers that have been planning on coming to see us on these dates and we hope to see you on tour quickly.”
Fashionable occasions are among the hardest to be a touring band. Bills are by the roof, merch cuts are screwing everybody over left and proper, and shortages abound as each band tries to get again on the market post-COVID. We want Flotsam and Jetsam all the very best with their future endeavors, and hope they’ll get again on the highway each time attainable – they are surely an ideal band.
