To all our friends & fans in Europe… With very very heavy hearts, our upcoming European run which starts next week will unfortunately have to be cancelled," said Exodus frontman Steve "Zetro" Souza.

"As a lot of you already know, over the past week, our brother Gary Holt had an unfortunate incident that happened to his brother in Italy, which resulted with Gary and his wife having to fly unexpectedly to take care of the situation. As some of you may or may have not read, the situation has taken a toll on our beloved brother.

"We are a family-oriented band, and family will always come first with Exodus. We hope you all understand the circumstances, at the moment, Gary needs to tend to his family. This is not what we wanted, as we were all looking forward coming to play for all of you great European fans that have supported this band for the past 40 years. Don't worry Europe, Exodus will be back! Thank you all for understanding, we love and appreciate each and every one of you."

"As much as it hurts, we have cancelled our tour of Europe. My mental health has been in tatters as I work to get the only other living Holt relative home," added Holt. "Hoping to fly tomorrow, approved for United but the connection, it will be at the partner airlines discretion. I'm just badly in need of a reset and to get my head on straight again.

"I'm sorry, I've played through broken ribs and anything and everything. But I have to prioritize my brother and myself. Thank you. Time to channel this into some music".
