CANNIBAL CORPSE bassist Alex Webster has issued the following update:

"[I] ust wanted to update you all on how the tour is going. We have had another major dissapointment, and that is that the concert in Venezuela was cancelled by the local authorities mere hours before we were to begin. This is an enormous disappointment for us, as all of the fans were already there, and many of them had traveled a great distance to get there. We are so frustrated, because there is no question this would have been an incredble concert. The venue was great, the equipment was great, all of the organization done by the local promoter seemed really well done. The audience outside of the concert seemed really excited about the show, and so were we. Unfortunately, the local government decided to shut the show down, and despite the best efforts of all envolved the show was cancelled. We are so sorry to all of the fans who came to see us play, you are no doubt the only people who are more dissapointed and frustrated than we are.

"In other tour news, we have learned a little more about the situation in Colombia. Apparently, a short announcement was made by a member of the local promoter's crew shortly after I made my announcement. I and the other guys did not hear this announcement as we were busy with our gear or greeting the fans, but while Paul was working on his drums he said he saw a man hiding behind the amplifiers talking into a microphone. From what we understand this man blamed the show stoppage on my illness, which as we have stated before is completely untrue. This dishonest announcement helps explain a great deal about why the audience was so angry. The guy who made the announcement was no doubt part of the same group of people that had just told us to stop playing because the police were shutting the show down. We are completely disgusted that this kind of misleading bullshit took place. We also have heard that the local promoter is saying similiar misleading statements on his website. We have never been put in a worse position by a promoter in the history of our band and we are furious about it. We also want to repeat that we are very sorry to our fans in Colombia for this early stoppage of the concert, we are so unhappy about all of this.

"OK, now that new have the bad news out of the way, I'd like to say a big thank you to all of the fans who came to the shows in El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Ecuador. Those shows went very well, and the audience response was just incredible. These shows have really helped lift our spirits during a tour that has had more than its fair share of problems.

"Also, just to let my friends know, I'm feeling fine now, and thank you so much for the support."

Are you going to be at the San Antonio date, Deanna? That would be sweet! Ask the fellas if they dig Greek food, 'cause it's on!

The boys have certainly had a fuck of a time lately, and my sympathies go out to them. It really sucks when cowards are in charge of shit.....hopefully they'll have a better run next time (provided there IS a next time, after this crap) and blow the fans away in the future.

Hey Deana yeah they got some crap luck down there in South America. I mean poor Alex food poisoning is NOT fun. And cops canceling shows what the hell. You would think the authorities would check it out way in advanced instead of canceling while the band is onstage and cause a riot situation putting the band in harm's way. It's crazy I tell ya. Well tell the guys we are eagerly awaiting the US tour, we hope Alex is feeling better, and come home safe and sound.

usually if I get to go it is toward the end of the tour so I end up back at home. The problem now is finding a babysitter you know. If I bring the baby I am stuck in hotels. I am gonna see what I can work out. I'll let you know when I know :)
