Ladyhawke’s Pip Brown offered a rundown of her UK tour on her blog at MySpace on Wednesday (October 8). The New Zealand pop singer said of her Brighton, England gig:
My first stop was Brighton which is always a pleasure to play in. I love that place. Its easily somewhere I could see myself living. I love being by the sea.
The show was nerve wracking – as always – but I really enjoyed it. About 6 years ago I got a gibson firebird (the symbol of which I have tattooed on the underside of my wrist) it was my favorite guitar. I also have a gibson explorer – anyway, when I moved over to London I only took my fender tele because it was smaller and lighter to travel with. I have missed my firebird so much ever since. The tone is incredible. The reason I have randomly broken into this little story is because I got a brand new Firebird and the show I christened it at was the Brighton show!!
The full blog has since been removed.
Ladyhawke’s Pip Brown posted an update to her MySpace (@ladyhawkerock) friends on Tuesday (October 7), sharing some bad news for her American fans. The New Zealand electropop singer writes:
I’m really devastated about this!!
My working visa couldn’t be processed in time so the shows had to be canceled!
We applied 2 months ago and are still waiting for them!!
I had everything booked, so as you can imagine I was really gutted!!
Its so strict trying to get visas for America!!
When they are finally processed I’ll definitely be coming over for shows!!!
I’m so sorry, to anyone who was going to come.
Stupid red tape.
lots of love

Pip Brown of Ladyhawke documented her group’s three shows in one day at the Glastonbury Festival late last month.
“Hey! I just put up the tour diary from Glasto,” Pip wrote to friends on MySpace. “It was a real busy day, pretty much arrived there straight after a show in Norway, played three shows, then went home! It was a lot of fun though. I hope you enjoy the video :-)”
