Echo and The Bunnymen raised the ire of their Birmingham, UK fanbase after attempting to postpone a concert. The band was scheduled to play Birmingham Symphony Hall on May 26th, but decided to push the show back a few days in order to watch a crucial Liverpool championship football match! 

They made the disastrous (yet honest) announcement to fans on social media, revealing they decided to move the show to May 29th because their "heads wouldn't have been in the right place" had they attempted to perform while the game was ongoing:

"We’re really sorry but we are going to switch the Birmingham Symphony Hall show on Saturday 26th May. The show will move to Tuesday 29th May all original tickets will be valid for the rescheduled show.

Both our fans and Liverpool FC are very close to our hearts and after much reflection we decided we couldn’t play a show during the Champions League Final.
We asked UEFA to change the date of the match but they denied our request.

We would always want to give 100% when we play but in this instance our heads wouldn't have been in the right place. We sincerely hope you understand."

Fans armed with verbal slings and arrows took to social media to bitterly vent their utter outrage and frustration. Less than 24 hours later Echo realized that they severely underestimated the understanding of their fans and moved the show back to May 26th.



Say what you will, but I respect their honesty throughout.

Echo and The Bunnymen return with a new album titled The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon on October 5th. The fifteen track album includes orchestral reworkings of Echo classics along with a handful of brand new songs and is available to pre-order now. Check out all the options here .
