Rock band Echo and the Bunnymen were due to perform at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on May 26, and opted to rearrange their gig and move it to May 29th because it was clashing with Liverpool’s Champions League final.
They released a statement on Facebook, which lead to outrage from disgruntled fans who were upset at having to cancel their travel and hotel bookings. Following the outcry, they changed their decision and opted to keep the gig on the 26th itself.
Chaos, we must say!
