NEWS; Tokio Hotel Concert - St.Petersburg cancelled yesterday!

The St.Petersburg show with Tokio Hotel was cancelled yesterday 08.03.10

Due to a very material contractual breach and violation by the local promoter, it was not justifiable to perform the St. Petersburg concert yesterday. The band had tried everything to make the show happen, but with no luck! Tokio Hotel are feeling sorry for the fans, but the situation left them no other option.

Who said it wasn’t safe?

Two stories so far are:
-Band said it’s a problem with the venue managers

-The venue said Bill was really sick.

Haven’t heard the “wasn’t safe” story yet.

The stage was completely together and rehearsal completed according to fans who where there.

This is what I was talking about. So many people are speculating it’s driving me nuts!!! I’m going to trust in TH and know is was a contract breach. I don’t think anyone was sick, my god, they would have said that was the reason if that was the case! Why would they travel all the way there, set up, only to pack up and leave? What they have told us is all ANY OF US KNOW! Anything else you read is rumor or specualtion. I am sure they will further explain in time so please just support the boys.

That’w what the official site says, but at the concert they said one of the boys were sick.

The stage was completely set up and ready to go according to the people who were there.

Some are saying it’s because less than a third of the tickets were sold, but the guys knew how many seats were sold well in advance of setting up the stage so that can’t be the reason. And being a massive venue I doubt they expected it to be full.

Everyone is reading into it, but the best explaination is exactly what Tokio Hotel said the reason was.

One site I read said the concert was almost completely sold out.

Hopefully the next show will go ahead as scheduled, because the cancelled show and the one in Moscow are both by the same promotor “Top Concert”.

It may have just been the promoters covering for themselves, when they blamed the cancelled concert on an illness.

Now they aren’t saying anything of an illness, but it appears any difference between the promoter and band have been ironed out as Top Concert stated the Moscow show will be fine.

I would be sooo sad though. I believe Tokio Hotel. They love all their fans and they wouldn’t do it for money. So people just chill out. Bill may have been sick, we don’t know. Concerts get cancelled. We don’t want his voice gettin hurt again, do we?

Yea, I feel sorry for the fans that were going to be at that concert. Hopefully they can get a refund, or better a concert redo. At another time I suppose it would have to be. But, that’s better than nothing.

I have managed a small local band in my home town.
I know about contract breaches. Contract breaches usually end in lawsuit, but can be sometimes settled outside of court for monetary or non-monetary remedies.

If the venue breached the contract, the band is advised not to perform until the contract disagreements are settled.
It is not wise nor safe to perform if the venue has breached the contract. If anything happens in a breach situation — band/crew/fans get hurt, food poisoning, technical problems, stage or structure collapse, or any other issue or problems — then liability and the person identified as responsible for these problems get difficult to identify or pin blame on.

A simple silly example (that actually happend to us):
A club under renovation contracted my band to play, stating in contract all renovs will be done by play date. It wasn’t. I told the band not to play due to unsafe conditions. They played anyway instead of listening to me and falling back on the contract. One of my nimrods got hurt kind of badly backstage and another one fell off the stage (although that one WAS funny!).
Venue argued the band shouldn’t have played as the venue wasn’t safe and they knew it/I told them as such. Band argued that property liability insurance and breach of contract should offer remedy. It was a convoluted mess that was eventually settled.

TH did the righ thing by not playing. They probably tried their best to get it settled down to concert time, but they couldn’t. TH is big time, unlike my local garage band. They are obligated NOT to play when a contract is breached. They have a BIG record company behind them, and if they say don’t play, then they won’t.
In the big leagues, money IS involved. This is their career. Fans are important but so is the money. Contract breaches always involve more factors and legal issues beyond money. Trust that TH did the only thing they could in that situaion. If that was the situation…

I heard that TOm was in crutches, but I don’t really think so! I think it was because of the reason the official site said. Some other people say that Bill is sick, but I don’t think so either! I Bill & Tom were sick, they would’ve tell! I don’t believe their sick, but who knows!

Can the fans use their tickets for the Moscow show?
The offical site says they’re in Moscow and ready for the show.

Is Moscow far from St. Petersburg? TH should offer them free transportation if it’s not too far. It’s a big arena so maybe theres room for everyone.

Sorry for the missed concert guys.
My friends and I were having wild sex with all four of the guys. (Georg’s girlfriend loaned him to me for the evening)

The concert wasn’t sold out. They sold 3500 tichets but the palaces were 11000. Bill and Tom are not sick there is a video in which they are going in tour bus.They are as normally.In Italy the concert of March 2008 was cancelled two weeks before because of Bill trouble. It was sooooooo sad. I think to poor fans that were already into the arena.
