Julien-K Live - 2008.01.27 Manchester, England
Linkin Park, *
- Julien-K posted shortly before the tour began, "Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to perform the dates as scheduled and therefore must cancel the European tour."
- A year later, in January 2009, Ryan answered the question more in-depth on the Julien-K forum, saying, "here's the truth - simplified (some of this is a bit to personal to share in to much detail). if you guys are really savvy and decide to dig deeper, you will be able to fill in the blanks as this story starts to pick up traction in the mainstream press. our company (L7) was having some major legal issues preventing us from being able to move forward in any substantial way. it wasn't anything that we (the band) did. it was a once in a lifetime nightmare that we inadvertently got caught up in - and we had no easy way out. in addition to that, and connected to it - one of our closest friends and partners were in crisis. we just couldn't leave in the middle of it. on the personal side - we needed to be there for our friend, on the business side, we were legally frozen. no passport issues, and we would never book a tour and just cancel it to go record. we lost A LOT of money by canceling that tour, and a huge opportunity. it was not taken lightly. hope this helps shed some light on why we were unable to do ANYTHING for so long. we have been in a 3 year long battle.
