Anthrax cancel summer 2023 European tour

Anthrax has canceled its summer 2023 European tour.

“To all our friends in Europe… Due to a series of logistical and scheduling issues, we won’t be able to make it to Europe this summer for the festivals we were set to perform at,” says the band. “We’re really disappointed about this, and want you to know that a solid - and overdue - European tour is a priority for us.

“Lots of exciting things are in the pipeline, so stay tuned.”

The summer schedule included appearances at Germany's Wacken Open Air, Slovenia's MetalDays, Czech Republic's Brutal Assault and Belgium's Alcatraz festivals, among others.

Fans will recall the group previously cancelled a series of 2022 shows in continental Europe “due to ongoing logistical issues and 2022 costs that are out of our control.”

Anthrax last performed shows on their 40th anniversary tour in January and February as part of the band’s co-headlining tour of North America with Black Label Society.

The New York rockers are next scheduled to appear late next month at the Milwaukee Metal Fest, where they will headline the second night of the three-day event.

Last year, the group 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 milestone anniversary.
