Kickin Valentina and Alpha Wolf Agency decide to cancel group’s UK tour scheduled for the fall
Kickin Valentina had previously announced that they had found a temporary lead vocalist (Joe Flynt of Asphalt Valentine) to fill in for all remaining shows aside from the three Germany shows that they had to cancel due to the departure of long-time frontman Joe Edwards. As it turns out, Kickin Valentina will be canceling five more shows that were scheduled to take place in the UK from September 27, 2018 to October 6, 2018.
The following message was posted on Alpha Wolf Agency‘s Facebook page yesterday:
After very careful consideration and close talks, it is by mutual agreement that the following Kickin Valentina UK tour has been cancelled.
Much has been publicised regarding Joe‘s sudden departure from Kickin Valentina & while the band were eager to uphold their commitment to the UK dates, we strongly feel that the band require time to regroup and come to terms with the currentsituation and not make any rash decisions.
Full refunds will be made via point of purchase.
Both AWA & Kickin Valentina express our sincere apologies for inconveniences caused.”
Kickin Valentina posted the following message in part on their Facebook page yesterday:
“Please see below for info regrading upcoming UK tour. This is not something that we or our agent wanted to do, but we all feel it’s better to postpone the tour for now.
There has been so much time and work put into these 2 tours by our agents and promoters only to have it wasted, and we thank them for sticking by us. We understand your frustration, and we apologize to our fans that were expecting to see us.
++ ALL US SHOWS ARE STILL CONFIRMED ++”
Kickin Valentina‘s next shows are at The Winchester Music Tavern in Lakewood, Ohio, USA on August 2, 2018 and at Kiwanis Park at Sheboygan, Wisconsin, USA with Saliva (and others) on August 3, 2018 and with Quiet Riot (and others) on August 4, 2018.
