HOMO IRATUS Pull Out Of Turkey's ROCK THE NATIONS Festival

Greece's HOMO IRATUS have cancelled their previously announced appearance at this year's edition of the Rock the Nations open-air festival, set to take place August 6 at Seven Towers of Istanbul in Turkey. The group's performance at the event was called off "due to certain events that will be all too embarassing for some to mention in here," the band write on their web site.

"We are sorry and hope to meet with the people that e-mailed us saying they were
eager to see us live at some other show in the near or far future and also hope this
situation will not repeat itself."

Acts still scheduled to perform at the Rock the Nations open-air festival include MANOWAR, GOREFEST and BALANCE OF POWER.

Rock the Nations' first installment (2003) featured performances by such bands as DIO, KREATOR, OPETH and ROTTING CHRIST. Last year, the festival hosted such groups as SENTENCED, U.D.O. , PAIN OF SALVATION, AMON AMARTH and PAUL DI'ANNO.
