Hi Everyone,

It is very difficult for what I am about to say. The Static Impulse tour has been cancelled due to some unfortunate, unforeseen difficulties with securing work visas for a couple of the guys. It would be virtually impossible for us to have these visas processed on time to begin the tour let alone the rehearsals which were scheduled for the week prior to the first show.
I don't know what to say other than we are all in shock and can only hope we can make this a reality at some point in the near future. I am really sorry to everyone who has gone out and purchased the meet and greets and show tickets. This totally sucks and I'm sure you're all quite upset and  have every right to be. I can only ask for your understanding and forgiveness and assure you that when we are in a position ( hopefully in the near future ) to tour all of this will have been taken care of well in advance or it just won't happen.

Sincerely,

James.

So very very sorry to hear about this James.   Sad  I just got my tix in the mail too. 

I hope the tour can be re-scheduled.  It was an event we were all looking forward to.  Chin up though.  All things happen for a reason - you guys will get through this.  Your Board members are still here to encourage you.

Thanks James for showing up and sharing this unfortune news yourself. It is indeed terrible. My stomach is like to be scattered by the waves on the ocean. Arghh it feels completely bad! But I have hopes for the future, hopefully all the things will be regulated and we can see you on the stage.

No worries, we are with you.

Arghh I have to say this. The fact is that the first thing came to my mind about this cancellation, Peter Wildoer was chosen for the position of the drummer of DT and you know there are lots of works to do and the second thing and funny too, Peter wasn't chosen and because of this he was terrorizing.  Grin Tongue

I feel for the ones with their tickets who were all looking forward to it, I feel for James and the guys also, it couldn't be helped, you didn't have much advance time to sort it, life likes to stop us in our tracks sometimes. Don't feel bad.  Wink

 Shocked Terrible news indeed, I love the new album and was truly looking forward to seeing you solo for the first time. I have seen Dream Theater countless times but was really hoping to catch this tour.

they don't care about the illegals pouring in, but heaven forbid a group of people come through and generate tax revenue for them.  what a crock of crap.  I'm really sorry to hear about this.
