Published May 11, 2010Fans of Australia electro pop psych outfit Empire of the Sun planning to attended the group's first Canadian show ever in Toronto this summer, start making new plans. The band have announced that a "scheduling conflict" has forced them to cancel the show set for Toronto's Sound Academy on August 8.
A message from Toronto promoters Embrace Productions reads as follows:
"It is with great regret that Empire of the Sun have been forced to cancel their planned performance at Toronto's Sound Academy on August 8th due an unavoidable scheduling conflict. The band are hugely disappointed and would like to apologize to all the fans who have already purchased tickets. Empire Management intend to bring the live show to Canada as soon as possible, although no time-frame can be confirmed at this stage."
A cursory glance at the touring page of the band's website reveals that the Lollapalooza performance is now scheduled for "(Date TBD) 6/7/8 August," meaning that Empire will likely be playing on Lolla's last day, instead of in Toronto. Otherwise, the band's first North American tour remains intact, with two added dates at Los Angeles's Henry Fonda Theatre.
Toronto fans can get ticket refunds at the point of purchase. Those who purchased from Ticketmaster needn't take action. An automatic refund will appear on your next credit card statement.
