Welsh rockers Bullet For My Valentine have cancelled the last two dates of their European tour due to illness.
The band scrapped a planned gig in Denmark on Thursday (11Dec08) night and subsequently cancelled a concert in Luxembourg on Saturday (13Dec08).
The group's representatives have released a statement apologising to fans and admitting the tour, which kicked off earlier this year (08), has left the band exhausted.
It read: "They have been touring virtually non-stop since February 2008, and after the show in Tampere (Finland) on Tuesday (09Dec08) night, the band started to develop flu and cold symptoms which had been circulating among the road crew. The band's agent is currently working on rescheduling the two shows at a later date.
"However, the band would first and foremost like to apologise to all the fans who have bought tickets to the concerts. They will be flying back home to the U.K. today to be with their families to get some well-earned rest so that they can come back stronger and harder in 2009."
