Eluveitie Show Not Happening Due To Visa Issues
By May 11, 2016 Nightlife
Sorry, heshers. Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie will NOT be performing at QSW on Friday the 13th. Nor will they be playing Beijing on Saturday or Guangzhou on Sunday. According to a long, long Weibo post by the promoter, the band allegedly canceled their own visa (???). That might be a first ever. Anyway, that Weibo post has the whole story and the email chain.

Bummer. But Shanghai has a lot more metal this week. Check our weekly music guide for all the info.

    The weibo post says they simply aborted their visa application (because they ran out of time)? They didn't have visas for the whole band.

    The intro to that post says "乐队就自己取消了签证的办理", so yeah it sounds like after lots of correspondence they canceled the application. Either way, very bu hao for metal fans. Hopefully they'll return soon.

    No need to try to translate the Chinese :D in that photo of the English e-mail it says "We canceled to apply because xxx didn't got the visa and there was nothing we could do"
