Ukraine’s Jinjer Cancel U.S. Tour Dates, Including Dates with Slipknot, to Help with Crisis at Home
For your average American metalhead, Jinjer are the band from Ukraine. Which is why it’s unsurprising, if sad, to learn that the band are canceling their upcoming U.S. tour to focus on helping out with the crisis at home.
According to a breaking report by Loudwire, one venue, St. Louis’ The Factory, has revealed the cancelation on social media, with a post containing the following message:
“It is with great sadness that JINJER have been forced to cancel their upcoming US tour dates.
“As the band and their families reside in Kyiv, their focus is on the safety of their families and their country.
“We all hope for a quick and peaceful resolution.
“All refunds will be processed automatically within 30 days of cancelation.”
The Factory, for their part, added the following:
“In light of these events and to do our part in supporting the overwhelming humanitarian effort that is underway in Ukraine, #TheFactorySTL is making a donation of $5,000 to the United Hatzalah.”
At least it’s inspiring people to give. Meanwhile, Knotfest has also confirmed that the band have canceled their upcoming dates on Slipknot’s Knotfest Roadshow tour.
