Deftones will play Baltimore, spokesman says; Steve Ignorant show cancelled
Deftones will perform in Baltimore after all, spokesman Rick Gershon said.
But the band's management has not yet settled on a new location for the pair of shows they were scheduled to play at Sonar May 16 and 17.
Like several other acts, the Deftones were left stranded Wednesday when Sonar unexpectedly shut down. The band's two nights at the venue had been sold out, though it's not clear how many tickets were sold.
Since the Wednesday announcement, Sonar staff have been successful at relocating some shows, but scores of others are still in limbo.
The Deftones, which won a Grammy award in 2001, were one of them. Gershon said Thursday that the band will still play Baltimore, but that it's uncertain yet where they will be moved to.The two-night residency could prove to be a complication.
Already, Bourbon Street has taken up at least three of Sonar's shows, including Talib Kweli, Vains of Janna and The New Deal.
The Maryland Deathfest might also move there, but a deal has not been announced yet.
On Twitter, Sonar staff said that a May 22 show by the band Terror has been moved to Sinix, in Essex.
Steve Ignorant, lead singer of the punk band Crass, announced the cancellation of his May 7 show via a press release. The show will be moved to Scranton, PA, but he said it's not clear if those who can't make it will be refunded.
"Blood really bad news. Our gig in Baltimore is definitely cancelled and we are not able to find a suitable replacement venue. We are still trying to find out if you will get a refund - for now, we suggest you contact the vendor you bought your tickets from," he said.
"It's not just as that's been shafted. There are apparently about 20 other sold-out shows that have met the same fate. What can I say apart from sorry and we're absolutely gutted. Baltimore, I'm really really sorry."
A Q&A with Steve Ignorant at Red Emma's has also been cancelled.Dan McIntosh, Sonar's acting manager, has said that fans shouldn't expect refunds for shows that cannot be rescheduled.
