Arcade Fire Scrap Concert in Portugal Due to NATO Summit


Arcade Fire Scrap Concert in Portugal Due to NATO Summit


Initially scheduled to perform in Lisbon on November 18, Arcade Fire have to cancel it because their visit coincides with a NATO summit.

Cult Canadian group Arcade Fire have been forced to scrap an upcoming show in Portugal - because their visit coincides with a NATO summit. The band was billed to perform in Lisbon on November 18, but "security concerns" have prompted city officials to pull the plug on the gig at the Atlantic Pavilion.

Reports suggest the group offered to bring the show forward by a day, but organizers of the political get together insisted it would not be feasible. A statement from manager Scott Rodger reads, "The band are disappointed to be forced into this situation but there's nothing more we can do... We'll endeavor to get back to see our fans in Portugal as soon as we can."

Tickets will be refunded in full at point of purchase from Nov. 3 onwards.
