FM no longer performing at M3 Rock Festival in US

It is with great regret that due to circumstances TOTALLY out of our control we have to announce that we are no longer playing the M3 festival in Baltimore. We would like to thank you for your amazing support and apologise to everyone that was looking forward to seeing us play at the festival. We know how frustrating it is to be told 'due to circumstances out of our control' but we ask that you respect there are reasons behind this that mean we cannot post specific details.

Nothing has happened that will affect us playing in the USA in the future and we look forward to the day when this will finally happen.

We are having such an amazing time on the Foreigner tour and have been overwhelmed by the support and reaction at every show so far so a BIG thank you to all of you.

We are very disappointed about the M3 but can't let it affect the mood in the camp as everything is going so well right now and we look forward to seeing some of you on rest of the tour.

Once again thank you for your continued support and amazing messages it really makes it all worthwhile.

Steve, Merv, Pete, Jem, Jim
