Serenity Forced To Cancel Metalcamp

12.07.2011 00:15 by SERENITY (9 comments)

Due to an injury of keyboardist Mario Hirzinger the band is forced to cancel the long awaited gig at Metalcamp 2011!

Mario on his injury and the cancellation:

On Sunday afternoon while playing with my girlfriend’s dog barefooted on a riverside sandbank I cut the sole of my left foot badly with a sharp edged stone hidden in the sand. The long and deep cut bled like hell and had to be washed aseptically and sewn later in the hospital. I'm off work for at least a week, have to wear a cork half-cast and must not step on the foot which means I have to use crutches to move around. That sucks big time as I really, really was looking forward to play Metalcamp and visit the beautiful festival area in Slovenia for the first time! I’m very sorry for every single fan that planned to see us there on stage!

Also the rest of the band feels really sorry therefor but sees no chance to play without Mario as his live performance cannot be replaced in such a short amount of time!

Go back

Mario, hope you get well. With that being said, I can't stop listening to the latest album! Serenity has evolved and the music is becoming much bigger. One of the areas in which facinates me as the listener comes from your contributions to the band. It's really what creates Serenity's atmospheric musical progression. I can't get enough of what Serenity has given us fans. Ultimately, I can now see how this made an impact on the band and its favorable decision to cancel that gig at Metalcamp 2011. On a side note, can you guys please hop aboard that legendary ship and head on over to the states (Phoenix, Az). Arizona (The United States in general needs better music...what better way than by having Serenity.)

I couldn't believe my ears when i heard you cancelled at metalcamp. Last time i seen you guys at atak, in enschede the netherlands.. the show was way too short, first was announced that you'd, again play only 30 mins then it changed to 40 and i was like YAAAAY... then the news of the cancelation came :( it kinda ruined my day at the festival to be honest.

Hope to see you guys in the netherlands, where its closeby again sometime soon! travelling 1300 kilometers to find out you were cancelled sucked hard :(

Hope everything works out and that you'll be rocking the stage soon again mario!

Too Bad Mario. Hope you will get better very soon.
Try one of those delicious Belgian beer. Good for the soul (and hence for the body, including injured feet...)
Take care!

Wow, I know this must really hurt for the whole band, to miss such an opportunity! Don't worry though, I'm sure there will be many chances in the future! Don't feel too bad, there will be others!! And Mario, I hope everythings heals well!
