Here's Erick Morillo's statement:

“For those of you that had bought tickets expecting to see me at
Monster Massive, what can I say, I think this is a blow for us all! I'd
heard so many great things about the Monster Massive shows and was
really looking forward to being a part of this Halloween extravaganza.
So to hear that we now have to cancel is a big upset to me. These
decisions are not made lightly and apologies to all those that had made
plans. I hope to see you all very soon”.
