Black Veil Brides have been forced to cancel several dates of their tour in Europe due to the passing of vocalist Andy Biersack's grandfather. Read a statement from Biersack below, as well as the cancelled dates.

“I am sorry to say that due to the recent passing of my grandfather I will not be able to complete the final week of this current tour. I feel it is necessary for my own grief and heart that I take this time to attend his funeral and celebrate his life with my family and loved ones before I head back into the studio to resume work on our next record. We promise to make up any dates missed the next time we are in this part of the world. We would like to thank Motley Crue and Slash for having us on tour with them…it was truly a dream come true.

Thank you so much for understanding…I love you all very much and will see you again soon.”

The canceled dates are:
6/18 – Paris, FR @ Le Zenith w/Motley Crue
6/20 – Bamberg, DE @ Stechert Arena w/Motley Crue & Slash
6/21 – Basel, CH @ St Jakobshalle w/Motley Crue & Slash
6/22 – Strasbourg, FR @ La Laiterie
