British rockers Cradle Of Filth have disappointed fans in Germany by scrapping an appearance at a music festival in the country.
The band was due to play at the upcoming Tomahawk Festival in Hamm, Germany on Saturday (28Mar09) but pulled out of the gig at the last minute.
The group has apologised to fans who were looking forward to see them - but have failed to offer a reason for the cancellation.
A statement on Cradle of Filth's website reads, "Due to circumstances beyond our control we have been prevented from performing at the Tomahawk Festival. Anyone who has already bought tickets and is unhappy about this should contact the promoter of the event. We are very sad if we have disappointed anyone as would never have wished to do that.
"Please accept our sincere apologies and we shall see you on our European tour."
