Fascinating story this:
I wonder what's going to happen with the rest of the tour now
Years ago now, (early internet days and pre on line digital tickets) when PJ Harvey was just breaking, she was doing a gig in London. I rang the venue at lunchtime a couple of weeks ahead of the show, to check ticket availability was told they had nearly 300 left. I diverted on my way home from work and went to the venue to get a ticket. Sold Out. Someone from her management company had been along that afternoon and bought all the remaining tickets.

How very, very odd.
Tour t-shirts might be collectors' items in years to come, mind.
At least he's not shooting up his local high school I guess.
This is really weird.
A ‘crowd video’ obviously fake because you can’t even see the band
And the music is fucking awful so probably best if the venues are empty.
I think somebody will have lost loads of money now they have been caught out
Feel sorry for The Exchange. They are a decent venue and let me use some space for free recently.
