Great White to replace Loudness at M3 Rock Festival due to Japanese rockers’ immigration issues
Loudness continue to experience visa problems to get into the USA to play concerts as the Japanese heavy metal veterans are experiencing some immigration issues once again and have to cancel their appearance for a second time at the upcoming M3 Rock Festival, which will take place at the Merriweather Post Pavillion in Columbia, Maryland, USA on May 4 and 5, 2018.
Last year, Loudness were scheduled to play the ninth edition of the M3 Rock Festival on April 29, 2017 but they were forced to cancel that appearance as well as a string of US club dates due to visa issues.
The following message was posted on the M3 Rock Festival‘s Facebook page late yesterday:
“Due to immigration issues, Loudness will not perform at this year’s M3 Festival. However, we are pleased to announce Grammy nominated hard rockers, GREAT WHITE, will be in place of Loudness. Great White, known for such hits as “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” “Rock Me,” “Save Your Love” and “Mistabone” return to the M3 Stage after a six-year absence. We are excited to have them.”
