Anthrax cancel European tour

Anthrax has canceled its previously-announced shows in continental Europe this fall.

“Sadly due to ongoing logistical issues and 2022 costs that are out of our control, we have no other option but to cancel the European leg of our upcoming 2022 tour,” shared the band on social media. “We will however be coming to the UK as scheduled.

“Tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.”


The New York thrash outfit has been playing dates on a 40th anniversary tour; the UK run will begin as scheduled on September 27 in Birmingham, UK, with shows wrapping up in London on October 8.

Dates affected by the European tour cancellation were set to begin October 10 in Brussels, Belgium and wrap up in Zurich, Switzerland on November 5.

The group recently released “Anthrax XL”, a package presenting the band’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:
