Rockers Lamb of God scrapped a concert in Washington on Monday night (11Nov13) due to a family emergency.

The group was set to perform at the ShoWare Center in Seattle, but pulled out hours before showtime due to undisclosed personal issues.

A statement on the venue's website reads: "Due to a family emergency Lamb of God will not be able to play the show at Showare Center."

No further details about the emergency have been released by the band.

Their co-headliners, Killswitch Engage, Testament and Huntress, decided to press ahead with their performance, moving the gig to the nearby Showbox Sodo venue.
