Sadly we need to share the rather frustrating news that Manowar, only one week after their glorius performance in Athens, has cancelled their show of tonight at Hellfest Open Air Festival, leaving the thousands of fans, that went to the festival to see their heavy metal heroes, behind in disbelief.

Hellfest announced: “Despite an on-site presence on Thursday 20 June, the teams and members of the MANOWAR band decided to leave the festival site.

The concert of the artist MANOWAR scheduled this Friday, June 21 will not be possible for reasons beyond our control.

We are sincerely sorry for all the fans of this artist and more broadly for all the fans of Hellfest”
