Yay! Soft Cell are doing a gig at the Shepherds Bush Empire in July!
Only they're not.
Theatre Of Marc Almond: "It has come to our attention that tickets are on sale for a Soft Cell concert at Shepherds Bush Empire on 21 July. This concert is NOT happening. As Marc is still recovering from his injuries he can only return to performing when his doctors give him the all clear. Marc's management agreed to the show in principal and would suggest it to Marc depending on his doctors reports. As Marc has not recovered enough he is unable to return to performing for the foreseeable future and will be unable to take on a Soft Cell style show for at least 18 months. The show was shelved and no contracts have been signed but the ticket agencies have decided to sell tickets anyway. If you have already brought tickets please get a refund as they have been sold under false pretences."
TicketWeb: "TicketWeb regrets to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances the Soft Cell gig scheduled for Shepherds Bush Empire on 21st July 2005 has been cancelled. TicketWeb apologises for any inconvenience caused."
