We were all pretty excited when we heard news that System of a Down's Serj Tankian was coming to South Florida with a full orchestra. So excited, in fact, that we decided to launcha contest to giveaway tickets and a meet and greet
for the show on October 9.
Well, we don't like being the bearers of bad news or anything, but after two consecutive European tours and a full promotional schedule, Tankian has announced that he's postponing his upcoming tour until a later date after the release of his upcoming album. We're not sure when that will be, exactly, but refunds for ticket purchases are available at point of purchase.
