In Akron, Ohio today, about 35 miles south of Cleveland and the bottom of Lake Erie. Take a hint, don't make this top of your next American adventure itinerary.
Anyway originally I planned to get myself out of my meetings and back to the airport by 3pm as I had a big night ahead of me. For some while we have had Razorlight
tickets at The Metro
in Chicago and I was soooo looking forward to seeing them play live. But then, last week when I was in London, an email:"Razorlight have been forced to make changes to their November US tour. The band very much regret that due to record label issues beyond their control they've been left facing impossible last minute logistics to complete the run of shows and are therefore obliged to pull out of the Chicago, Seattle, San Fransisco and Los Angeles dates. Razorlight would like to apologize to the fans who have already bought tickets and hope people understand that they're putting in place as much US activity as they can. Meanwhile, the dates in Boston, Brooklyn, New York and Toronto will go ahead as planned with The Von Bondies supporting plus Gran Ronde. The band will be attempting to re-schedule the remaining shows as soon as possible."
Fucking great. I had heard from my brother that Johnny Borrell has had one too many nights out according to the tabloid press recently, I'm hoping that wasn't the reason they blew off tonight.
Anyway I had strategically arranged for me to get an earlier flight tonight so I could get back to see them live, and now I have this empty feeling. I really hope Johnny and their record label allow them to get their arses in gear and get over here soon.
