State has just received the following statement regarding Gogol Bordello’s upcoming Irish dates:
Due to a knock-on effect from strikes in mainland Europe, GOGOL BORDELLO have been forced to postpone the first section of their European tour, which (sadly) consists of the two Irish dates which were lined up for Sunday 21 November at the Mandela Hall in Belfast and Monday 22 November at Olympia Theatre, Dublin.
The good news is that new dates have already been lined up:
Tuesday 15 March 2011: DUBLIN, Olympia Theatre
Wednesday 16 March 2011: BELFAST, Mandela Hall
Tickets for the original shows will be valid for the new dates (and tickets for these new dates go on sale immediately from Ticketmaster and all usual outlets).
Gogol Bordello would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by these circumstances, which were beyond their control.
