Word came down on November 12th that Children Of Bodom have cancelled their scheduled appearance at the Tuska Open Air 2013, scheduled for June 28th - 30th in Helsinki, Finland. Bassist Henkka T. Blacksmith issued the following statement:
"We've been waiting to play Tuska for some years now. It is our home festival after all. Unfortunately this year we have to sacrifice a couple of festivals in Europe in order to be able to be part of a big tour in USA. These are not easy nor nice decisions. We only can hope we can do Tuska in the near future again. Please stay tuned for our schedules for summer 2013. Fortunately we are able to play shows in Europe as well. Looking forward!"
