Static-X + Sevendust Cancel Show ‘Due to Inadequate Security Measures,’ Share Statement
The Machine Killer tour featuring co-headliners Static-X and Sevendust alongside special guests Dope and Lines of Loyalty hit a snag yesterday in Murfreesboro, Tenn. where the show was canceled last-minute due to inadequate security.
A statement on the matter has been released by the co-headliners.
The tour — the first between Static-X and Sevendust since 1999 — kicked off on Oct. 6 in Houston, Texas. This current leg will wrap up on Nov. 1 and a second run is already booked from Feb. 1 through Feb. 27 (see those dates near the bottom of this page).
Fans hoping to catch the stop at the Hot Springs Beer Park in Murfreesboro unfortunately did not get their opportunity as the artists, promoter and venue worked to find a solution that would allow the show to go on as intended after encountering issues earlier in the day.
In a joint statement shared by Static-X and Sevendust, the bands explain the circumstances:
The last thing any band ever wants to do is to cancel a show. We were all here and ready to play when we were given the news that officials had shut the event down due to inadequate security measures. We wish this didn’t happen and are working to figure an alternative to bring the show to the area as soon as we can.
Safety of everyone involved — artists, crews, venue staff and fans — is paramount and refunds will be issued at the point of purchase.
The co-headliners are out on the road promoting new music. Sevendust recently released their 14th album Truth Killer while Static-X pushed their latest, Project Regeneration: Vol. 2, to Jan. 26 of next year (pre-order it here). Special guests Dope and Lines of Loyalty also have new records out — Blood Money Part Zer0 and Hurts To Be Human, respectively.
You can also see the newly released music video for Static-X's "Z0mbie" beneath the upcoming tour dates directly below.
