Mumford and Sons have cancelled gigs: because their stage show is too tricky?
Mumford and Sons have had to cancel four forthcoming shows, those in Liverpool, Cardiff, Sheffield and Manchester. This happens, of course, people become ill and… sorry, I’ve been passed a note. No one is ill. It seems to be the stage is too tricky?
Yes, Mumford and Sons have taken to social media to apologise for literally just realising their stage show won’t travel very quickly, so have axed shows, leaving fans who’ve paid to travel up shit creek chased by shit eating crocodiles. Of all the bands who don’t need a fancy stage, Mumford and Sons must be up there. The statement is below, and if you want to know how Twitter is reacting just punch yourself in the face.
“It is with a really heavy heart that we have been forced to postpone four shows on this UK tour due to unforeseen technical and logistical challenges. As you may know, the Delta Tour is by far the most ambitious show we’ve put together and we have had to free up some space in the schedule to be able to execute it, given some obstacles that have come up in production.
As we also hope you know by now, we never postpone shows lightly, in fact it’s something we try to avoid at all costs – so this decision has been incredibly difficult to make but in this case we have no other choice. The truth is that it is simply not humanly possible to play these particular shows at this time and we are sorry the reality of that only truly landed after we completed Belfast yesterday.
We are therefore rescheduling our Liverpool, Cardiff, Sheffield and Manchester shows to 2019 & will share information on the new dates very soon.
Original tickets will be valid for the rescheduled dates and for those who may be unable to make the new dates, you will be offered a full refund from the point of purchase. Please head to our website for more info.
We are so sorry to need to do this, but we will see you soon.”
