For those of you who still don't know, last Friday Enter Shikari were forced to cancel their sold-out Bristol show due to unfortunate illness. We were scheduled to be the main support that night, and had just finished a very smooth soundcheck when we got the news.
As you can imagine, we were gutted that we couldn't perform, but our main concern at the time was for Rou's condition and also for the hundreds of fans who were outside the venue in the rain, many of whom were not only Shikari fans, but were also Elevens. We went outside to talk to the queue, and we ended up organising an impromptu afterparty/table tennis tournament, which hopefully cheered a few people up (it certainly helped our mood a bit!).
Obviously, all parties involved wanted to reschedule the show as fast as possible, and it has been decided that the show will go ahead on the night of Thursday the 9th of July. Sadly, we had a gig that night in Sheffield, which we are being forced to move, to Monday the 13th of July. We did not want to do this if it could be avoided, but we're working around the availabilities of ourselves, the Shikari team and two venues and promoters, and this is really the only way we can proceed.
All current Sheffield tickets will be valid for the moved gig, and we are also offering refunds for anyone who can't make the new date (please email your ticket provider).
In other, happier news, we have another show on the tour, in Chester! You can get your tickets now here: http://area11.band/shows/
We'll be announcing supports really soon! We're in rehearsals right now getting ready, we can't wait to play for you guys again!
Thank you for your ongoing support, much love.
