There was much buzz and hype in the U.S. this season for visual kei fans, and for a good reason! It seems like this year is one of those rare years where the U.S. gets quite a handful of visual kei bands who travel to the States to perform for their American fans. However, as we all have seen and experienced, sometimes things just don’t go as planned and unfortunately this is the case for Calmando Qual.
To the disappointment of the band members, staff of Rock-En Event Management and surely to the fans as well, it looks like Calmando Qual is unable to give a treat to their fans in the U.S. this year for Halloween, as they had originally planned.
A few hours ago, Rock-En Event Management regretfully announced on their official FB page that “due to circumstance outside” of their control, Calmando Qual will not be able to make their U.S. debut this year. Calmando Qual’s scheduled performances (the one on Halloween and the one on November 1st as well) are both cancelled. Here is an official statement that was found on Rock-en Management’s FB, Calmando Qual’s FB, and Maya’s Blog:
Message from Calmando Qual regarding the American Horror Show
Calmando Qual was to perform in the US on October 31 and November 1,
but due to circumstances beyond our control,
both appearances had to be canceled.
We sincerely apologize to all those who were looking forward to this tour.
Just like all the fans, the four of us were very excited to perform in America,
and we are very sad and disappointed to see things end this way.
But we look forward to the day when we can attempt a US tour again,
and we’ll keep working hard as a band to ensure that
we can put on an even better performance at that time.
Though this tour did not have a happy ending, we hope that
we will always remain connected to all of you through our music.
Although your disappointment can’t be compensated, if you have purchased a ticket to either event, do email and get in contact with Rock-En Event Management as they have stated in their announcement that they will be issuing refunds.
At the moment there is no official statement or word from the boys themselves, but we will update you with the latest info if anything comes out. Edit: Updated with official statement!
Despite the tragic news, don’t let it dampen your mood! And most importantly have a wild, fun, safe and rockin’ Halloween!
