Tour update from Page
Posted by Helmet on Oct 03 2014
Dear Helmet faithful,
I’d like to start by thanking you all for showing up and making the european “Betty” tour one of the best tours we’ve ever been part of. Unfortunately we had to temporarily suspend the tour the day before our Helsinki show as I received news from my brother & sister that my father passed away Friday September 26th. We’ve decided to reschedule the missed shows for early November.
