Bad news for local fans of Bradford Cox's solo project Atlas Sound and the dreamy pop of U.K. electronic outfit Broadcast, as the two bands have canceled their Saturday appearance at Hailey's in Denton.
The cancellation is due to "scheduling/travel problems that are absolutely impossible to change," states a press release penned by Lance Yocom, president of Spune, which scheduled the show.
Yocom's release doesn't specify what led to the cancellation. Both bands are still scheduled to perform at Fun Fun Fun in Austin Sunday. The agency for both bands, Windish, has removed the Hailey's show from their touring schedules, but the Fun Fun Fun appearances for both bands are still listed.
I've reached out to Fun Fun Fun and Windish to confirm that the festival performances are still on; seems safe to assume they are, but I'll update if I hear otherwise.
Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase. Full text of the Spune release is after the jump.
Update: Sources at Windish and Fun Fun Fun Fest confirmed that both bands will perform Sunday in Austin as scheduled.
For Immediate Release:
Due to scheduling/travel problems that are absolutely impossible to
change, Atlas Sound and Broadcast have to cancel their show Saturday
at Hailey's. We're very sorry, as are they. We hope to have a make-up
date scheduled soon and will let you all know immediately. We're
disappointed and sorry to bring you this news, but we do thank you for
understanding these things happen. Frontgatetickets.com and all
websites are currently in the process of being updated with this news.
Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase. Thanks for your
continued support of Spune, Hailey's and the events in our area.
