Earlier this week it was announced that Nevermore has pulled out of the upcoming Symphony X North American tour. The buzz around the interwebs seems to have fans kicking and screaming but I say good riddance in all honesty. I’m not a big fan of Nevermore is just “ok” in my book so for me, this is a blessing. That’s just two less bands I have to stand through before seeing the almighty Symphony X. Symphony X released the following statement:

“Some of you may be disappointed that Soilwork, and just recently Nevermore, left the tour; we share your frustration. We were looking forward to taking such a great line-up out on the road, but shit happens; best of luck to those bands in the future. That being said, we’re still psyched about getting back on the road and giving the fans a full-on, killer show every night. We plan on doing some tracks from our upcoming CD, Iconoclast, and are really excited to be playing them for our North American fans for the first time ever. It’s going to be awesome!”

This tour is going to be awesome nonetheless and I cannot wait to FINALLY see Symphony X for the first time. This is going to be one hell of a show so don’t miss this one y’all!
