LISBON, Portugal (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Depeche Mode have called off a massive show set for the Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon, Portugal on July 28th, due to a dispute with the show’s promoters.
The band claims that the promoter, Brand New Day, did not pay supplier’s bills, making it impossible for the band to take the stage.
A spokesperson told the BBC News that the companies involved in the production “had not received any money and logistically the show couldn’t happen.”
Rebuffing rumors of poor ticket sales, the spokesperson noted that 75 percent of tickets for the show had been sold, but that “I don’t know where all the ticket money went.”
Depeche Mode issued a statement from the full band apologizing to disappointed fans, and advising them to seek a refund from the point of purchase. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
