Sons of Apollo Cancel Summer Festival Dates, Add European Dates

Sons of Apollo

All-star prog rock group Sons of Apollo has canceled the remainder of its summer festival appearances. The band, anchored by Billy Sheehan on a doubleneck bass, made the announcement on Facebook.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, Sons Of Apollo regretfully has had to cancel all remaining Summer Festival appearances at Wacken Open Air and Prog In Park II,” they wrote. “We sincerely apologize to all of the fans that were looking forward to these appearances. The headlining show in Budapest originally scheduled for August 18th has now been moved into our Fall schedule and will now happen on Sept 17th. All tickets for the originally scheduled Aug date will still be honored.”

The setback isn’t slowing the band down, though. They also announced four new shows in Germany at the end of their European tour. The band will appear at the Prog Power USA festival in Atlanta, Georgia before heading to Japan and then to Europe for most of September and October.
