- Two Door Cinema Club cancels due to illness
- City and Colour moves into headline position
- Foals (pictured) joins the Splendour 2014 lineup
Alex Trimble of Two Door Cinema Club is unable to travel to Australia, so the band has pulled out of its exclusive Splendour appearance. The band sent this message:
“It is with a heavy heart that we are going to need to cancel our upcoming trip to Australia for Splendour in the Grass. Alex collapsed at Seattle airport on the way to London and has been hospitalised with a chronic stomach complaint. We are devastated to have to cancel this show that we were so looking forward to. We can only apologise and hope for your understanding at this time. Love TDCC x”
Bad news for Two Door Cinema Club fans (see below for news of refunds for people with one-day tickets), but great news for Foals fans! Foals have decided that flying to the nation that’s given them their first number 1 album was right up their alley.
They’ll fly in for just 48 hours & give us one of their internationally renowned ‘extreme level’ live performances.
City and Colour (below) will also move into the headline position Saturday 26 July closing the Amphitheatre Stage for the third day of the festival.
Dallas Green began touring Australia as City and Colour less than four years ago, and in that time has seen an incredible rise in popularity; not only boasting sell-out rooms time and again, but building his audience by thousands with each visit. Starting with an impressive 10,000 sales on his first headline tour, then more than 20,000 on his return, his December 2013 national tour, in support of the album The Hurry and The Harm (Dine Alone/Cooking Vinyl) which debuted at #2 on the Australian charts, saw him perform for over 30,000 fans nationwide. In between visits to Australia, Dallas and his band, which includes Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather), Dante Schwebel (Spanish Gold, Dan Auerbach), Doug MacGregor (The Constantines) and Matt Kelly, have been performing to huge crowds at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch and Lollapalooza.
