STATIC-X‘s June 30 concert at Levels in Scranton, Pennsylvania has been canceled.
The show was part of the band’s North American trek, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of STATIC-X‘s platinum-certified “Wisconsin Death Trip” album and pays homage to the group’s late frontman Wayne Static.
STATIC-X broke the news of the cancelation in a social media post last night. The band wrote: “We are very sorry to announce that the STATIC-X show at Levels in Scranton PA on 6-30-2019 has been cancelled.
“This is an isolated incident, resulting from a misunderstanding of the stage size at the venue and its ability to support the production associated with a tour of this size.
“We know that the fans in Scranton will be very disappointed, as are we.
However, this USA tour is as much about memorializing Wayne Static, as it is about anything else… If we are unable to project Waynes face on the big screen for everyone to see and celebrate, it just doesn’t feel right…
“Again, we are very sorry that we will be unable to perform as scheduled, and we hope that we will be able to see the fans in the Scranton PA area sometime in the near future.
“Tickets will be refunded by the promoter.
“Anyone who purchased a meet and greet from the bands will be refunded immediately!
“Below is a photo of the tour production, along with a photo of the stage at Levels.
“This is nobodies fault, It was an over site / misunderstanding.”
STATIC-X kicked off its reunion tour on June 18 in Tempe, Arizona. The trek features co-headliner DEVILDRIVER and support from DOPE.
While the identity of STATIC-X‘s touring singer has not been officially revealed, strong rumors suggest that DOPE frontman Edsel Dope is pulling double duty during the trek and performing with bassist Tony Campos, drummer Ken Jay and guitarist Koichi Fukuda.
Wayne Static died in November 2014 after mixing Xanax and other powerful prescription drugs with alcohol, according to the coroner’s report. The 48-year-old, whose real name was Wayne Richard Wells, was found dead in his Landers, California home.
Static founded STATIC-X in 1994 and achieved commercial success with “Wisconsin Death Trip”, which included the rock radio hit “Push It”.
“Project Regeneration”, featuring the last recordings of Static, will be released later this year. The rest of the group’s original lineup will also be featured on the album and in the music videos.
