Swedish heavy metal band Candlemass have been forced to rearrange two dates on their upcoming tour of Greece after learning their concerts clashed with the country's national elections.
The group was due to play a gig in Thessaloniki on 2 October (09) but that show has been cancelled and another gig, set for Athens on 4 October (09) - Greece's election day - has been moved forward to 3 October (09).
Candlemass have refused to reschedule the Thessaloniki concert because they have no plans to tour again after the October dates until April 2010, reports Blabbermouth.net.
