UPDATE: KMFDM have canceled their Thursday show at Orlando's Hard Rock Live. The venue released the following statement Tuesday afternoon:

Unfortunately, due to the imminent arrival of Hurricane Ian to the state of Florida, the KMFDM concert on Thursday, September 29th is cancelled. Refunds are on the way. Please stay safe.

What does KMFDM stand for? There's been some colorful theories over the years, but one thing they'll certainly be standing "on" is an Orlando stage in September as part of an imminent North American tour.

The European industrial-metal stompers were originally supposed to hit the City Beautiful as part of Ministry's anniversary tour last month. But hopefully this solo headlining date — a celebration of the band's breakthrough 1995 album Nihil officially joining the 27 club —  is a worthy consolation prize.

KMFDM play the Hard Rock Live on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, April 20, through Ticketmaster.
