The Walkmen show at the Electric Factory on Saturday, October 6th has been cancelled. Last night on the band’s Facebook they said: “we are going to have to cancel our show at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia on October 6th for some dumb reason. We’ll be back there soon to make it up.” That said, here’s some additional information from the band:
Due to personal reasons we will be canceling our show on October 6th in Philadelphia. We apologize and hope to make it up to you soon! You may receive a full refund at your point of purchase. For online purchases via Ticketmaster you will be automatically refunded within 1-2 business days. Should you have any problems you may contact Ticketmaster customer service at 1-800-745-3000.
War On Drugs, who were scheduled to open the show, weighed in on their twitter @warondrugsjams: “Really disappointed that our Philly show with @TheWalkmen has been cancelled. Definitely not our decision. We’ll make it up to you xoxo”
East coast indie rock band The Walkmen are returning to Philly for their first major show since releasing Heaven, their seventh full-length record. They will be performing at the Electric Factory with The War on Drugs on Saturday, October 6th in support of the new album. Tickets are available here for $22, or you can enter to win a pair of free tickets from The Key. All you need to do is answer this trivia question: a few years back, The Walkmen covered an album by a ’70s psych-pop songwriter in its entirety. What was the name of the artist and the album? Leave your answer in the comments and we’ll choose a winner at random to receive a pair of tickets to the Electric Factory show and an autographed 7″ from the band. The winner will be announced this Friday morning. Good luck!
