Organizers have canceled the planned three-day LatRock6 tour of England by the popular country group Apvedceļš from Latvia. The band was to play in Bradford, Wisbech and the Straumēni rest home in Catthorpe from April 18-20.
Ticket sales were slower than expected and organizers could not risk a financial loss, Pēteris Pētersons told Latvians Online in an April 13 e-mail. LatRock6 was to follow LatRock5, a three-day tour of England during March by the rock band Dzelzs Vilks. Advance ticket sales for the Dzelzs Vilks tour also were slow, Pētersons said.
LatRock began in 2004 and featured Latvian-British bands Arvīds un Mūrsitēji and Cietie Rieksti, as well as Latvian band Logo. Other LatRock concerts have featured Dzelzs Vilks, Mielavs un Parcēlāji and Līvi, as well as Latvian-British bands Alva and Krona.
