TROUBLE GATHERING

Curious goings-on (or rather not) with Tribal Gathering: last Wednesday, all the VIP passes were stolen from the organisers at King Cross; today, the event was pulled.

The wording of the official statement seems to imply that it was the London Bombings which had led to the cancellation:

"FOLLOWING RECENT EVENTS IN LONDON, HUGE SECURITY MEASURES WERE GOING TO HAVE TO BE PUT INTO ACTION, WHICH WOULD HAVE PUT AN EVEN GREATER FINANCIAL BURDEN ON THE EVENT. IT IS WITH THIS IN MIND THAT PLAYING ALIVE ARE FORCED TO CANCEL THE EVENT.

"IF YOU PURCHASED TICKETS FROM TICKETLINE YOU CAN EXCHANGE ONE TICKET FOR TWO TICKETS AT THE FORTHCOMING TRIBAL GATHERING WAREHOUSE PARTY, OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE ENTITLED TO A FULL REFUND OF PURCHASE."


- although as it doesn't actually state clearly what they mean by "recent events", they could just mean the theft of their passes. Surely the organisers wouldn't be attempting to hide behind the London Bombings as a not-quite-excuse, would they? And if they really do mean the London bombs - how much extra security would that have meant, exactly?
