I believe we are replacing 'Leftfield" for reasons unknown.
Not announced on their site as yet.

From http://www.metamo.info/news/229111900.php

"Leftfield cancellation notice:
Leftfield, scheduled to perform on Metamorphose 2011 has been unexpectedly forced to cancel due to health concerns.

Message from Leftfield management:
Sadly we regret to inform you that Leftfield have to cancel their performance at Metamorphose in Japan this year which was due on the 3rd September. Neil Barnes is extremely ill and had an operation recently, after which we hoped he would rapidly return to full health. However his condition is more complicated and he has to go back to into hospital shortly for another operation. Owing to the serious and urgent nature of the operation, we have been advised that he should not consider any lengthy flights plus he will need time to recuperate.
Apologies for any inconvenience, Leftfield's tour party including Neil are all very disappointed at having to pull out. Hopefully we can look at a further opportunity to bring Leftfield to Japan in the not to far distant future when Neil has recovered."

And here a hilarious Google translation of http://www.metamo.info/news/229111901.php

"808 State (LIVE SET) has decided Cast!
2011.08.17, METAMORPHOSE 2011

Roland's TR drum machine legend of the origin of the name - and while the 808
808 State appeared as a comet from the acid house scene in 1988.
Since then, creating a lot of hits from over by Aphex Twin and Rephlex Records ZTT, they continue to maintain popularity over the near quarter century
Cast LIVE SET decided in full on-piece 09.

In Japan, the band set is valuable,
Since six years and appeared in 2005 as a SPECIAL GUEST on the WIRE.
Lovers can enjoy a wide range of acid house breakbeat mania,
Coexist in the Yaba and live entertainment is a must see! ! "
