Dear UK friends and fans, we are deeply saddened to communicate that it is necessary to postpone our gigs in London (11/10) and Manchester (12/10) due to production reasons.
We know the news leaves you very little time to change your plans but we assure you that it came with short notice to us too.
In the past 48 hours we did everything in our power to keep the shows as planned but we are left with no other choice – which is a really hard one – than moving them to a later date.
We apologise very, very much. We care about every single one of you and we were so ready to party in the UK. We hope that you can make it to the new dates, we promise you two unforgettable nights.
Tickets remain valid, more info will come as soon as possible.
Please stick with us, you are everything we’ve got. Thank you for understanding.
