European Tour Cancelled

Posted: 11/02/2013 18:00:00 | Comments: 28

Dear Diamonds,

News-Bummer-alert. Unfortunately I have had to cancel the April European 'Lonely Hearts Club' tour.

We have tried everything (and I mean absolutely everything) to make these dates feasible but it has proven to be logistically impossible given the current routing and tour production.

To say I am frustrated and disappointed is an absolute understatement. For whatever reason, this European tour was not meant to be and in hindsight, I probably should have cancelled it instead of postponing it but I just really wanted to make it work.

A blog from me won't make things much better but I feel so sad that I won't get to see you all and this is the only way I have of telling you in a personal(ish) way.

Apologies if I have caused any disruption or inconvenience to anybody's schedule.

All tickets will be refunded.

Til next time.

Marina x x

    Very nice to see that there a few new US dates added, thanks to the cancelled European tour ! Now we know where your priorities lie.

    I have taken 3 days off work (concert of october in Brussels got postponed twice !!!), for nothing !

    Real good marketing !

    @SINEAD Yes, I arranged my university courses around the two Belgian shows. Sorry I'm not in the right mind. She means a lot to me for reasons I won't elaborate for you. In other words: fuck you.

    Sorry to hear that: though I was looking forward to seeing you again, I believe you tried everything to make these shows possible. It can't be nice having to read the negative messages after you tried to make it work. A lot of people, including myself, don't think about the logistical nightmare of a tour. Anyway, it's your record and if you can't perform the shows like you wanted to, I'm sure you'd be frustrated, so I understand and respect your decision, however hard it must have been. Try and think that most vitriolic fans only reacted out of frustration because they wanted to see you live. Actually, your blog did help because - between the lines - it showed your frustration of having to cancel these shows. I'm pretty sure you've started brewing on some form of revenge for the cancelled part of the tour and we will all look forward to the day that arrives, in whatever form: a new tour, a song, or ??? Keep your head up and we'll see you again, someday.

    @Shudini

    I know you're upset, you're allowed to be. Just don't be angry at Marina because it's not her fault, because as she said, she did everything she could. She'll be back in Europe someday. I've had plenty of artists postpone and cancel shows, it's just what happens sometimes.

    To Annapeasoup
    Ok maybe you're right, but what I have written below is my first reaction, and I'm very disappointed, I go to a lot of concerts by various artists but for the first something like that, first time postponed to another date ,now tour canceledl ... sorry for my english

  • annapeasoup Wed 13 Feb 2013 @ 01:47:19AM Wrote:

    And another thing...people saying that she'll get more money in the US? Are you stupid? US are known for having smaller crowds, especially for not so well-known artists. She's LOSING money by having to cancel this European tour. My favorite band is only touring Europe this year because they know they won't make shit if they toured the US. Europe has bigger crowds, bigger venues, and more fans. So a big "fuck you" to all the people taking the piss out of the US.

    I can't believe some of the shitty comments I'm reading. All of you should be fucking ashamed of yourselves. It's not like Marina didn't want to do this tour, it's that she COULDN'T. Things don't work out, that's life. So if you're going to blame her for something that's out of her control, then you should just piss off. We don't need fair-weather "fans" like you anyway. I'm disgusted.

    That said, I'm sorry to all the European fans who will be affected by this, but it's not like she'll never tour there again, good god.

    Looking forward to seeing you in Chicago, Marina. Love you xx

    I don't believe anymore you Marina. keep your own concerts, i dont buy any of tickets to there or buy your CD's.

    @TheRealMarina - Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining! You didn't have the guts to tell the "good news" f2f on OV in Derry - why? You're welcome to import your refunded tix in a rectal way. What's about booked hotels, flats and flights all over Europe? Go to your beloved fat US kids, but please - and tbh I'm begging you - never come back to us in the mainland. You're actually the 'Queen of postponed gigs' and you've definitely sold out. Another brown-nosing pop bimbo of US music industry is on the market *hooray* totally riding up the wrong path.

    Well, not really a surprise, but it still hurts. So much.

    I hope that when the 3rd record will be out, the staff will remember us, and those THREE fucking tour cancelled, and do an European tour, BEFORE ANY FUCKING CONTINENT.

    @ AMERICANISM, I don't want you to take this the wrong way & I'm certainly not looking to start an argument or even belittle the monetary value involved, but when you consider the fact that the concert tickets will be refunded, and to my knowledge (or a least from my experience) when you book a hotel that's literally all you do as they don't usually charge you until your checking out, although you might have to pay a deposit, either way if you give them enough cancellation notice you shouldn't be charged at all.

    However the part that really bothered me was when you said " the worst is that my entire second semester at university is totally fucked up now because I only took courses that would allow me to come to the shows in Belgium", I mean really? Who in the right mind arranges university courses around going to a concert? You can't put that burden on someone else's back, it's downright unfair and cruel. I'm sure Marina feels bad enough without having that shoved in her face.

    @Marina, Chin up kid, It can't have been an easy decision, and it's unfortunate but these things happen for a reason. Those of us who adore and respect you will understand & support you.

    Much Love!

    I'm so devastated! :( I hope you come back to Europe soon, Marina!
    All the best of luck!

    you work your ass off and we know you wouldn't decide to do something like this if it wasn't for a good reason! we understand that and obviously its dissapointing but you tried your best and that is all we can ask of you .. Keep kicking ass Marina! <3
