ISTANBULWorld famous Finnish cello-metal band Apocalyptica has announced that it has canceled its concert set to take place in Istanbul on April 8.

“With great regrets we need to announce that Apocalyptica will not play a concert in Istanbul on April 8, 2017. Some of our touring-party are nervous travelling to Istanbul due to officials warnings from various European Ministries of Foreign Affairs including Finland, Germany, Great Britain. As a band, we do not want to force people into going to somewhere they are not happy about going to. We all hope we find another opportunity to come back to Turkey, soon,” the band stated on its social media account.
