Bad news for the fans who are waiting for the arrival of the visual kei band Matenrou Opera in Europe. Yesterday afternoon the band posted a message in Japanese about the upcoming European tour. It became clear that the tour, with the start date of June 30, will not begin at all.
In the morning of June 15 the band posted an English translation about the tour cancellation:
We regret to announce the cancellation of the 2017 Matenrou Opera European tour.
In light of the current situation in Europe, with rising difficulties facing personal security and promoter operations,
after much hard and long deliberation, we, band members and staff, decided our highest priority must be the unconditional safety of our fans.
As it is, and as it stands, with uncertainty abound, we deeply regret the decision to cancel all dates on the European tour .
Regarding ticket refunds, the promoter will make an official announcement, so please stay tuned.
Matenrou Opera and Bellwood Records apologize for any inconveniences this causes.
Matenrou Opera and Bellwood Records are not responsible for any personal expenses related to this tour cancellation.

B7 is very sad to inform we had to cancel the upcoming european tour planned for Matenrou Opera. Despite the band efforts and our promotion we must face a pity reality. We have been working J-Rock and Visual Kei for 10 years and for us this is a very sad ending. We hope for a new interest of Visual Kei bands in the future to allow them to tour Europe again in good conditions.
