Rockers Black Veil Brides have axed the remainder of their European tour following the death of frontman Andy Biersack's grandfather.
The group, which was due to wrap about its trek in Belgium on Thursday (24Jun12), has now cancelled its final six gigs so Biersack can properly grieve with his family.
In a statement, he says, "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."
And the vocalist is grateful for all the fan support.
He adds, "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."
