    Bugger! I have tickets for the Oslo show on November 10, but now the venue website tells me the show is cancelled. A bit of googling reveals that the Copenhagen show (Nov 12) is also cancelled, but Gothenburg on the 11th still seems to be on. As far as I can tell, all the other fall shows in Europe are OK too. But I find nothing so far on this site or on myspace saying anything to explain the cancellations. Anyone know anything?

    No, but something should be posted about it soon. If not, we have found that non-stop whining does eventually get someone's attention.

    Has Spoon played in Oslo before?

    OK, I'll keep my eyes open and start whining only if necessary.
    Yes, Spoon played a big summer festival in Oslo in 2007. I was lucky enough to be there.

    I just sent a quick email to the guy who books Spoon's European shows (...according to the contact info on the Spoon site - I have no idea how current that information is). Let's see if I get an answer!

    I received a reply:

    Dear Rebecca,

    Unfortunately the band has some scheduling issues.

    ...not much of an explanation :/

    ... er, no, it's not. Thanks for asking though, I appreciate it. Hopefully, in due course, they'll be decent enough to let us know a bit more. Not much to ask, given that we went to the trouble to buy tickets and now have to get them refunded. And, I don't know how it is in the States, but here we can't recover the ticket surcharge, so I'm out 50 kroner (about 8 bucks).

    redaktor: It's like that here, too, with big ticket vendors like Ticketmaster.

    Odd that the band can make it to Sweden on Nov 11 but not neighbouring Norway the night before or Denmark the night after. Poor ticket sales? One can only speculate.
