EMAIL NOTIFICATION FROM THE ORGANISERS
We regret that the concert of The Sisters of Mercy in De Vooruit on January 25 was canceled due to the singer's illness. We would like to expressly thank you for your patience and sporty attitude. Since the situation only became clear very late, this was anything but obvious. Communication was only possible late because we initially assumed that the concert could continue as normal. Only after the scheduled start time did it become apparent that the singer was too ill to perform.
We are currently discussing the next steps with the group's management. We will let you know as soon as possible what will happen to your tickets. If a new date is found, the tickets will be rebooked to that new date. In case of permanent cancellation, a refund will be made automatically. In the meantime, we ask for some patience. We will keep you informed. On behalf of the band and the organization, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
All the best to Andrew Eldritch and The Sisters from here. Take good care.
