Three appointments in Germany affected |
Mystery about the cancellation of Swedish House Mafia concerts
This justification sounds extremely flimsy.
Electro house group Swedish House Mafia have quietly canceled six dates on their Paradise Again European tour, which begins later this month. Including the concerts in Frankfurt, Berlin and Hamburg.
While the news is being kept secret on the three Swedes’ social media accounts – there are still posts with tour dates including the canceled concerts – some ticket holders have already received a message from the organizer.
“Over the past few weeks, our production team has been working tirelessly to resolve several issues. The cancellation was the absolute last option, but it is now necessary. All tickets will be refunded,” the message said in the email.
After a concert in Los Angeles, which the electro musicians pulled through despite heavy rain, there was recently news that the band’s stage equipment had to cope with damage worth millions.
Nevertheless, they had their next performance a few days later in Vancouver. The current cancellations seem to be due to poor ticket sales. Before the concerts in question disappeared from the event exchanges, there were still a number of free tickets available.
The Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin (17,000 seats), Barclays Arena in Hamburg (16,000) and Festhalle Frankfurt (13,500) were probably simply too big for Swedish House Mafia, whose biggest hit Don’t You Worry Child (3x gold in Germany) was ten years ago.
The other two Germany concerts in Munich and Cologne are still on sale. It’s not the Swedes’ first cancellation on the current tour. Two months ago, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello already canceled some dates in the USA.
Now it hits the fans in Germany, Lisbon, Vienna and Tampere.
