Children Of Bodom Canceled Tour

Bad news arrived from Children Of Bodom official website at Children Of Bodom was forced to cancel North American No Fear Energy Tour regarding their guitarist Alexi Laiho's injuries. Alexi Laiho who fell from his bunk on the band's tour bus suffered a broken shoulder and internal bleeding. Alexi was in a lot of pain and tried hard to finish the tour, but failed. He was advised by doctors not to continue, and the band is going home.

Alexi Laiho said " I give everything I have to try to finish this tour and play every remaining show", and he did, indeed attempt to do so. But it was obvious to fans who attended subsequent shows that he was struggling to cope with his injury at their show in New York on May 8th, Alexi was visibly in pain and the band were unable to continue their set beyond the third song.

He added "This was a hard decision for me and I feel bad about it,” . “But it is the right thing to do if I want to keep making music. I apologize to our great fans for not being there for the remaining shows and I want to thank all the guys from the other bands; Lamb of God, As I Lay Dying, God Forbid and Municipal Waste for backing me up on this. Most of all I want to thank our fans for still being there, showing support, and continuing to rock out with me! I promise I will be back and I hope you all will too! Horns up!”

Six dates have had to be canceled, including a co-headlining show with As I Lay Dying on the 14th, but, to put the band's withdrawal from the remainder of the tour in perspective, throughout their long career, Children Of Bodom have only ever canceled two shows.
Children Of Bodom will start their European summer festival run on May 30th from Rock Hard Festival 2009 in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. Hopefully the festival dates will be carried out as planned earlier, wish him a fast recovery.
