We regretfully announce that Gogol Bordello will be missing ROTHBURY this summer. The band asked we share the following letter with you all:
It is with deep regret that Gogol Bordello has to cancel our planned appearance at this years' ROTHBURY. Due to a personal family matter and unforeseen circumstances, we will not be able to perform during late June and early July.
Gogol Bordello can count on one hand the amount of times we have cancelled shows in the past and it is not something that we like to do. Our supporters are the best in the world and we do not want to disappoint anyone, be it a comrade in music, a promoter or a fan. This has been a long arduous decision and not one that we have taken lightly. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to reschedule all affected shows in the near future as well as appear at ROTHBURY in 2009.
Rothbury is excited to add the following artists to our line-up:
Sam Beam of Iron and Wine
Kyle Hollingsworth Band
