Last month it was Eyjafjallajokull, this time it's the untimely death of Dio that caused the cancellation of Budgie's U.S. tour.
I wrote in this past week's paper about the Welsh metal band; as of this weekend, the show that article tied into on Thursday was cancelled. The members, according to the Allentown Morning Call, had to cancel the tour in order to attend a memorial for Ronnie James Dio on the west coast.
Elko Concerts as of now says another Budgie show is in the works for November and all tickets for the previous cancelled shows will be honored then. Contact Elko for more information.
