CRIMSON GLORY Replace JON OLIVA'S PAIN At Pathfinder Metalfest; New Date Announced
August 30, 2010, 8 years ago
The 2010 Pathfinder Metalfest in Marietta, GA originally advertised JON OLIVA'S PAIN as headliners. That has since changed and CRIMSON GLORY now have top billing.
The official statement from Jon Oliva's Pain on this cancellation reads as follows: "It is with great disappointment that JOP will not be able to attend this years Pathfinder Metalfest. Family matters with regards to several members of the band made it impossible for us to make this show work. We would like to thank Hoyt and everyone at PMF for their professionalism and understanding. They know that we did everything possible to make the show work."
Hoyt Parris (Pathfinder Promotions) says: "When I got the word I was disappointed and heartbroken, as first and foremost, I'm a fan. We worked diligently to secure another great traditional metal headliner. And I believe we have done just that in the form of true pioneers of the progpower genre..."
Crimson Glory are confirmed to headline the Pathfinder Metalfest on its new date of November 6th. Guitarist Jon Drenning states that the original lineup of musicians are looking forward to debuting their new lead singer - Todd La Torre - while delivering an intense show featuring several rare songs from the early catalog as well as one or two 'new' surprises.
The supporting lineup remains secured: ICARUS WITCH, WIDOW, THEOCRACY, ARTIZAN, VOID OF REASON and MERZAH.
The venue and hotel information remains the same.
General admission tickets for November 6th will be available for purchase through Ticket Alternative on Tuesday, August 31st.
