Suicidal Tendencies and Korpiklaani are the latest bands confirmed for the Tuska Open Air, held at Kaisaniemi in Helsinki, Finland on June 26-28, 2009.
L.A. based thrash/speed metal – legends Suicidal Tendencies and Finnish folkmetallers Korpiklaani have both been added for Saturday.
The Welsh metalcore band Bullet For My Valentine have unfortunately been forced to cancel their scheduled Tuska show for 27.6.
Here is an excerpt from the band’s official statement:
“Bullet For My Valentine are forced to cancel their appearances at DS Luzhniki Arena in Moscow and Tuska Metal Festival in Finland in June 2009 due to recording commitments for their 3rd album.
The past few weeks have been a bit crazy, and we apologize to all the fans who have bought tickets to the shows that have now been canceled. It has been difficult to try and fit everything in around the recording schedule, but the most important thing is for us to finish the album.”
