The Electronic Beats team is sorry to announce that The Kills are unable to perform at this Thursday’s Electronic Beats Festival in Cologne, as well as two France shows. We would love to blame situations like these on Mondays, but unfortunately it’s not always that easy.
We understand that Kills fans will feel disappointed, but we also ask for your understanding that the decision for the show cancellation wasn’t easy for either The Kills nor Electronic Beats. Please note that our planned video live stream is cancelled, too. Of course, Miike Snow, Austra, The Hundred In The Hands, Citizens!, and COMA will remain on the bill. On top of that we’re working hard on finding a stand-in for The Kills. We’re sure to still have a great night with all of you at E-Werk Cologne on 24th May 2012.
Please find The Kills’ statement in full below:?
“The Kills are sad to announce that due to illness, they will not be able to play our scheduled shows this week.
The shows that are affected are:?
May 24th, Electronic Beats Festival Cologne 2012, Germany
May 26th, Les Curiosités du Bikini, Toulouse, France
?May 27th, Festival Europavox, Clermont Ferrand, France
Jamie and Alison would like to apologize to all our fans who had bought tickets to see them at these festivals.“?
Please turn to firstname.lastname@example.org via email if you’ve bought advance tickets or have questions concerning the situation explained above. Of course, all advance tickets can be returned to the corresponding box office (please note: tickets bought at 4010 Telekom Store Cologne must be returned at regular box offices). As a compensation for the Kills cancellation we’ll be offering a goodie at the venue’s box office to all ticket owners.
