The Devil Wears Prada explain tour cancellation

The Devil Wears Prada have posted an update which explains why they won’t be returning to our shores for the Soundwave 2010 festival.


Frontman Mike Hranica posted the following:


"As some of you guys may have heard, we have had to cancel our Soundwave Festival dates. I know a lot of fans are really upset with us, and I’m not going to argue with anybody and I’m not going to dive into business and logistics. We just wanted to make it a little more clear what has happened.

"Recently we received an offer to do a tour to end all tours, which conflicted with our time in Australia, as well as our headline shows in New Zealand and Australia. Regretfully we had no other option but to cancel the shows in order to participate in the tour we were offered. What I want to make most clear is that we truly care about the shows we had to cancel, and we sincerely care about heading back to Australia. Come on, it’s a region comparable to heaven on Earth! Why would we not want to go? Many great bands are playing the fest, we haven’t played Australia in quite some time, and it’s a place we look forward to being in more than any other country. Maybe that will help you to understand the magnitude of the tour offer that recently presented itself.

"Please keep an eye out for upcoming Australian TDWP touring news! We pray for you dudes to be understanding and to come out to the future shows we do in Australia (God willing)."

    Gee, what a suprise, once again a band pulls off Soundwave to chase the mighty dollar associated with a different tour. Fuck you Devil Wears Prada, you’re explanation is a goddamn joke, just like the book you stole your name from. What a bunch of faggots for god

    Bloke gave a straight up answer so he shouldb’t be persecuted for doing so.

    Its easy to write them off but if your band was offered more cash, more dates, bigger shows and a longer set you would be an idiot not too.

    I’d rather see devil wears prada do their own show anyways… Can’t be fucked seeing them, outside, dusty, hot as fuck, hungry (cuz I can’t be asked spending 2 hours in a line for food) with shit sound…

    They are really good kids (and yes, they are kids), and they have actually worked really hard to get themselves where they are at.

    They came here last time, did OK numbers, and as Crossnecks, they are actually sick cunts.
