Today we woke up to find the sad news that today’s concert with the glamourous Hercules & Love Affair is cancelled. The official communication says:
“Due to a sudden illness of a key band member in Hong Kong, we bring the unfortunate news that Hercules and Love Affair will not be able to perform their scheduled show at Mao Livehouse on October 9th in Shanghai.
The band send their deepest apologies to all those that have already bought tickets and to the many more that had planned on attending the show. It is still in the band’s interest to tour China one day and they still hope this can be fulfilled in the near future.
S.T.D. will be arranging a full refund of tickets at the box office at Mao Livehouse tonight from 9pm – 11pm. For those who aren’t able to arrive tonight for a refund, they will be able to do this at the S.T.D. office at the address below.
Room 310 –No.1 South Maoming Road (near Yan’an Road)
It is with our deepest regrets to announce this news and the inconvenience it may have caused those wishing to attend. “
This is truly a big dissapointment for a lot of people, including S.T.D.’s leader Reggie. I talked with him yesterday evening, and he was the most excited to go to pick them up to the airport, take them for dinner, and around Shanghai, Reggie had all carefully set up for them to have a great time here. And here at Layabozi’s den, we were very excited about today’s concert. It’s pretty bad that one of them is ill now, and in Hong Kong, far from home. We wish them a quick recovering, and we hope to have soon news about a next date with them in China.
This is what we will be waiting for.
