Anthrax Concert: The Ongoing Performance by the Society Was Called Off

The Main Street Armory in Rochester, New York called off Friday night’s (August 19) performances by ANTHRAX and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY owing to a “broken stage.”

Early this evening, ANTHRAX and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY issued the following joint statement on social media:

“The Main Street Armory in Rochester show scheduled for tonight has been canceled due to production issues that made it unsafe for the bands to perform.

“Even though ANTHRAX and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY hate to cancel gigs, we have to think about the welfare of the musicians and staff.

They regret any trouble or displeasure this may have caused and express their sincere regrets. In the future, we want to perform in Rochester once more.

You can get your money back in the store where you made your purchase beginning on Tuesday, August 23.

Scott Ian, the guitarist for ANTHRAX, also posted on his own Twitter account, saying: “We apologize for the cancellation, but unfortunately we must cancel your Rochester visit.

The venue refused to fix the stage, and it was no longer safe to continue the performance. It’s bad news for both of us and for you. You may count on us to return to the spotlight, my dear friends.”

A fan who arrived at the Main Street Armory in time to see opening act HATEBREED play before the remainder of the event was canceled tweeted: “Due to a “broken stage,” Rochester called off the show after HATEBREED played only five songs.

“We have to get off stage, safety first, let’s get this taken care of to see BLS!” yelled the frontman for HATEBREED. Is there time for one more song? There was a 40-minute delay after the fifth song before an employee could take the stage “.

The tour starring ANTHRAX, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, and HATEBREED got underway on July 26 at Van Buren in Phoenix, Arizona.

On Sunday, August 28th, the tour will come to a close at the Fillmore in Philadelphia. Headlining sets are being provided by ANTHRAX and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, respectively.

It’s the 20th anniversary of HATEBREED’s “Perseverance” record, and to mark the occasion, they’ve invited us to party with them.

Even though ANTHRAX and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY had played together multiple times at festivals and one-off gigs, this tour will be the first time that the two bands have played together on the road.

For All Kings, ANTHRAX’s newest album was released in February 2016 via Nuclear Blast.

In 2021, ANTHRAX held a variety of celebrations to mark its 40th anniversary. Ian and bassist Dan Lilker formed ANTHRAX on July 18, 1981 in Queens, New York, and they were one of the earliest East Coast thrash metal bands. They swiftly rose to prominence with METALLICA, SLAYER, and MEGADETH.

Five decades into their career, ANTHRAX have played thousands of shows all over the world, including sold-out performances at Madison Square Garden and Yankee Stadium alongside the “Big Four.

” They have also earned 11 gold and platinum certifications for their studio albums and been nominated for six Grammys.

A number of reviewers have hailed “For All Kings” as ANTHRAX’s finest work to date. It came five years after the band’s renaissance, which began with ANTHRAX’s participation in the “Big Four” tour and continued with the release of the comeback album “Worship Music.”

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY has been on the road since the release of their eleventh studio album, “Doom Crew Inc.,” in November of 2018 on MNRK Heavy (formerly eOne Music).
