SEPULTURA | banned from performing in Lebanon30th April 2019 0 By John Deaux
The SEPULTURA performance that was scheduled to take place at The Palace – hamra in Beirut on April 28th was cancelled due to the fact that the band was not allowed to perform in the country by the general security office.
It is the first time in SEPULTURA’s 35 year history that they have been banned from performing in a country. The incident has especially been a disappointment for the band’s Lebanese fans who were unable to witness the performance, therefore SEPULTURA’s performance due to take place in Dubai on May 2nd will be streamed live through the band’s YouTube Channel, in honour of their Lebanese fans who missed out. The stream will be taking place here:www.youtube.com/sepultura
Tune in this Thursday 2nd May at 10pm Lebanese time / 8pm BST to view a stream of the entire performance.
The band would like to thank Skull Session, Sepulnation around the world, media that have covered the situation and the Embassy of Brazil in
Sepultura also recently announced more UK wide screenings of their movie. Part concert film, part testimonial to the power of music, part intimate insider view, Sepultura Endurance is a close-focus portrait of Brazil’s rock legends featuring previously unseen archival footage from the band’s 30 year history. It features interviews with legends including Lars Ulrich, Scott Ian and Slipknot’s Corey Taylor.
Having been on the road for almost 30 years, founding their own genre and influencing a generation of younger bands along the way, these Brazilians have proved to be a true institution. Sepultura has released 14 albums and sold millions worldwide, earning multiple gold and platinum records across the globe. Following the band as they toured and recorded their last three albums, a time of tension and triumph, director Otavio Juliano serves up the history, myths, conflicts, personnel changes and struggles, allowing us to see them at their most vulnerable and human, as well as icons of heavy metal.
Tickets will go on sale approx. 1 month before each screening via the above links. More info here: www.docnrollfestival.com/films/sepultura-endurance/
Sepultura released their 14th studio album Machine Messiah in 2017 via Nuclear Blast.
