[GIG UPDATE] Bon Jovi Cancelled Shanghai and Beijing Dates

Bon Jovi 亞洲演唱會主辦發出聲明:「我們很遺憾地宣布,由於不可預見的原因,Bon Jovi 在上海 (9月14日) 和北京 (9月17日) 的演唱會將會取消。」華盛頓郵報引述消息人士指原因可能是樂團在2009年的音樂視頻收錄世界各地的抗議片段,如柏林圍牆倒下的抗議 ;又有指真正原因是主唱 Jon Bon Jovi 在2011年演唱會期間播放達賴喇嘛的投影。可幸的是暫時澳門和台灣的演唱會暫時一切如常。

A statement from AEG Live Asia puts to rest any hope of a steel horse riding into Shanghai or Beijing. “We regretfully announce that the Bon Jovi 2015 Shanghai concert on Sept. 14 and Beijing concert on Sept. 17 have been cancelled due to unforeseen reasons.” The Washington Post cites a source as saying the cancelations may have been caused by a 2009 music video featuring footage of protests across the world, including the Tiananman Square protests and the fall of the Berlin Wall; as well as images of the Dalai Lama projected behind Jon Bon Jovi during a concert in 2011. The band’s concert in Macao and Taiwan remain unchanged until this moment.

[NEWS] Save Live Venues!

獨立音樂場地要經常應對財政困難及無理投訴。英國一個名為 The Music Venue Trust 的組織推出計劃,希望為挽救英國各地的音樂場地爭取更多政治支持。他們編寫了一份報告,表示自2007年起,每十個音樂場地便有四個倒閉,當中大部份被指對環境造成嚴重影響。許多酒吧和場地因附近興建新放屋後,被租戶投訴噪音而被迫關閉,某些情況下只需一個投訴,便而令到它們關門大吉。

Live venues have to frequently deal with financial struggles and nonsense complaints. In UK, a group called The Music Venue Trust have launched a bid to secure more political support for their attempts to save premises that put on live music across the UK. They’ve compiled a report that says around four out of every ten venues have closed since 2007 – and many of them have gone as a result of heavy-handed environment laws. Many pubs and clubs have been forced to shut down after homes were built nearby and new tenants complained about noise, with only one complaint being necessary to make closure possible in some cases.
