It’s with great regret that I’ve had to cancel East India Youth’s show at the Frost Festival in Copenhagen this Sunday, due to Will’s ill-health. It’s not something I do lightly, and – having promoted for 25 years, co-owned a venue and booked a festival – I’m acutely aware of the shit this puts the good people at Frost in at such short notice. Those emails are never nice to send, but a whole lot worse to receive.
Copenhagen is a city both Will and I love and we were greatly looking forward to visiting, and playing what would have been the first show with his new live-set up, and songs, but his health isn’t something I can gamble with.
Many people worked hard to arrange this show; Head Booker Kristoffer, our Danish promoter Kasper, Festival Director Mikael, and particularly Marie, the Head of Production. A lot of money and time has been expended. And there are those who bought tickets for the festival, partly to see EIY.
I am truly sorry, and to all those mentioned above I offer my apology.
I wish things were different.
Manager, East India Youth
