The Ting Tings Cancel U.K. Tour
Unfortunately, Ting Tings fans in the U.K. are going without this month. Stereoboard reports that Katie White and Jules de Martino have announced that they've been forced to shut down their U.K. run due to logistical concerns. This includes stops in Dublin, London, Manchester, and Glasgow, with ticket holders being directed to the point of purchase to obtain refunds.
The duo do still have shows planned in other parts of Europe, as they will kick off their latest tour leg with appearances at Germany's Rock im Park and Rock am Ring festivals on June 1 and 2. Dates on both sides of the cancellation will continue, and the pair also have September dates booked for Japan.
This marks the second major cancellation for the band this year. However, the other one was somewhat out of their control. The duo was expected to play at the 5.5 Festival earlier this month in Mexico City, but the festival was called off at the last minute. The group's promoter worked hard to schedule a last minute show in the area, but then the band found themselves stranded in Argentina having issues with their Mexican work visas, unable to get the proper documentation in time.
The Ting Tings are currently touring in support of their 'Sounds From Nowheresville' album that was released back in March. It features the singles 'Hang It Up' and 'Give It Back.'
