(Classic Rock) Phil Anselmo has revealed in a letter to Hellfest organisers that Down won't play any European festival dates this year following his controversial outburst at the Dimebash event in January.

Hellfest published Anselmo's letter on their Facebook page. It reads: "My awful mistake has taken a toll on my reputation, and justly so. However, I must point out, you damned-well know me better than this drunken incident could ever describe. Hellfest is my heart.

"And my embarrassment is tremendous, because I only have love for people all over this skirmishing earth. So my brother, it f***ing rips my heart into further pieces to let you know, I don't think I should do any Euro festivals this year.

"So please I beg you, give me this time to get my brain clear, and to come back (if you will have me back) next year my brother, I implore you." Read more here.
