The Ting Tings Condense L.A. Shows Following Katie White’s Surgery
The Ting Tings have been forced to condense their scheduled shows in Los Angeles following vocalist Katie White's appendix surgery. The gigs were originally supposed to be held at the El Rey Theatre tonight (March 21) and tomorrow night (March 22), but due to White's recovery, she and fellow Ting Ting Jules de Martino have decided to combine the shows into one mega show.
White made the announcement via Twitter, writing, "LA; Due to my appendix op, weds show has been combined into larger thurs show & now at the Mayan." All tickets to Wednesday's gig will be honored at the larger, Thursday night concert, which has now been moved the Mayan Theater in downtown Los Angeles to accompany the bigger crowd.
This isn't the first itinerary change Ting Tings fans have been forced to endure recently. The duo's scheduled Tuesday performance at the Clubhouse Music Venue in Tempe, Ariz., was moved to another area venue after a shooting outside rapper Nipsey Hussle's Clubhouse concert left 13 people injured. Now it has been outright canceled due to White's surgery.
However, there is a bright side to the situation. Even though she just had a serious operation, de Martino took to Twitter to ensure their fans that White is doing quite well and is excited to get back on the stage. He wrote, "All of a sudden NYC is alive, K is up on her feet and ready for LA show on thurs nite. J #whataweek."
In other Ting Tings news, the band recently shared a playlist of songs that they drew inspiration from for their latest album 'Sounds From Nowheresville,' including tunes from the Beastie Boys, the Tom Tom Club, TLC and Nancy Sinatra. The LP is available now and features the single 'Hang It Up.'
