aimeesmum Sorry to see the Wallingford CT Oakfield Theatre gig has also been cancelled, and at such short notice too. Makes you wonder who's next?! Seems the USA gigs are not immune to "Gorillazcancelledgigitis" after all! You join the spurned Glasgow, Newcastle & Milan fans, some of whom did warn everyone, everywhere, that being in receipt of tickets guarantees nothing. I notice though, the site didn't provide a comments button for those let down by this latest cancellation to voice their dismay under this announcement, as is available on all other pages. Perhaps fed up hearing legitimate complaints from disgruntled fans?? Still, at least you got an "explanation & apology"....cold comfort I'm sure...it took two weeks for us to get either after the July cancellations!!! On a plus note, I have now received both my refund and the litho.

EnduroRacer You guys have to bring Mos Def and Lou Reed or there can't be Some kind of Nature, Sweepstakes, and Stylo!! I don't think my questions will be answered but if I bought a VIP ticket package (if I still can) and did the pick up plan at the box office do I still have to put in Billing information?
