Anthrax cancel Dallas concert appearance due to a medical concern

Anthrax canceled an August 8 performance at the South Side Ballroom in Dallas, TX just hours before the event “due to a medical concern.”

“We are sorry to let you know that due to a medical concern, Anthrax have to cancel tonight’s show in Dallas,” announced the group on social media. “Black Label Society and Hatebreed are still performing tonight, come and rock out with them! Refunds are available until box office closes at (9 p.m.)”

“We’ve waited so long to be able to celebrate our 40th anniversary,”
says Scott Ian, “and are so disappointed that we won’t be able to do so tonight - frankly, it blows. Thank you for your support and understanding, and stay safe.”

No further details were provided at press time regarding the situation; the bands are next scheduled to perform in Austin, TX on August 9.

Anthrax kicked off their 40th anniversary North American tour July 26 in Phoenix, AZ; the series is scheduled to wrap up in Philadelphia, PA on August 28.

In sync with the tour’s launch, the New York thrash outfit released “Anthrax XL”, a package presenting the group’s July 2021 livestream event that saw them perform an extensive two-plus hour set at the Los Angeles soundstage/studio The Den to mark their anniversary. See also:
