    Hell yes! I was in English class this morning and I saw the rumor of this tour with 2 dates, then some guy commented and posted the rumored dates and their was no Atlanta and I was so pissed. I was thinking of how I could go to the Orlando date because I usually go down there for the summer to visit my cousin. But now I don't have to worry about since there's an Atlanta date. Last time I saw them, it was the 3rd best concert ever for me so I'm really excited to see em again.

    And perfect timing.....I just got Vertebrae in the mail today :kickass::kickass::kickass:

    From what I read somewhere Enslaved is trying to revamp this tour, and then announce new US dates as soon as they can.

    Here's what I have read at various sites:



    Norwegian progressive metal artists Enslaved has posted the following message online:

    "It is with great regret that Enslaved has to announce the cancellation of the North American 'Vertebrae' tour [with Swallow The Sun and Keep Of Kalessin] scheduled for May 2009. At the heart of the issue lies a tour that was hard to get together in the first place so we've decided to let the whole tour be cancelled and start working on setting up a new North American tour all the way from scratch again. . . Our sincere apologies to all the fans that were ready to come out to these shows; but rest assured — we are working day and night on setting up the new tour that will replace these dates."

    I hope they hurry up and announce another tour and it BETTER have Atlanta......this was my most anticipated tour of 2009 so far. Enslaved are amazing live and the European setlist (usually is identical to their US setlists) was good and they were playing a few new songs.

    This just sucks because my first year of college was gonna be over in May then I would get to see Kreator, then Enslaved. Not anymore :(

    That's too bad, really wanted to see Keep. Maybe they will bring Equilibrium with them. :)

    If they did that, the tour cancellation would be a good thing :)
