LOUDNESS Cancels European Tour Due To 'High-Rising' Costs

Japanese legends LOUDNESS have cancelled their 2023 European tour. The tour was supposed to kick-off on April 6, 2023 and conclude on April 22, 2023 at the Keep It True Festival in Lauda Königshofen, Germany.

LOUDNESS released this statement on March 23: "As already announced by the local agent, the EU TOUR scheduled for next month has been canceled. The tour was planned three years ago, but since the Corona disaster, it has been a difficult decision in terms of operational judgment, such as not only soaring airfares, but also soaring various expenses and a shortage of human resources, making it difficult to secure a means of transportation that can handle the hard schedule every day.

"We are very sorry to the fans who have been waiting for the band for three years, but we would like to return to Europe in the near future and deliver the best performance.

"For ticket refunds, please check with the counter where you purchased the ticket.

"LOUDNESS Members & Staff".

LOUDNESS' most recent album is 'Sunburst' which dropped on July 2022 via eaRMUSIC. It was originally available in Japan om Decemeber 2021.

LOUDNESS' current line-up is: Minoru Niihara (vocals), Akira Takasaki (guitar), Masayoshi Yamashita (bass) & drummer Masayuki Suzuki who joined in 2009.

LOUDNESS is set to hit the U.S. this coming May. The 22- date run will start at Dingbatz in Clifton, New Jersey on May 4, 2023 and will end at the legendary Whisky A-Go Go in Hollywood, California on June 4, 2023.
