Hadouken! Check In After Bestival Gig Gets Scratched

Hadouken! checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@hadouken) on Sunday (September 7) after their schedule Bestival performance in Isle of Wight, England was cancelled. They write:

Sorry to anybody who was hoping to see us as Bestival. We were there on site just about to get changed into our awesome zombie pirate costumes when we were told that the BBC Introducing stage had been closed down due to the weather conditions and our show had been canceled.

We were gutted as this was our last UK show of the year but there was nothing we or the festival organizers could do.

British weather is sh**.

We’ll definitely be back next year if they’ll have us.



Hadouken! Summer Tour Update

James Smith of Hadouken! checked in with fans on the Leeds, England indie pop group’s blog at MySpace (@hadouken) on Saturday (June 21). Smith writes, “It’s been a long time since I sent a message to you. First off gotta thank you for the support over the last couple of months, most importantly those who bought the record or came to a gig. The top 20 chart position was a nice surprise to us all and the tour was off the fu**ing hook. We have been getting more and more confident on stage and actually getting fitter with all the exercise so smashing up the place for an hour is no problem these days. We did a Czech festival the other week and I copied Kurt Cobain and jumped into Nicks drum kit at the end of the show. I can now tick that off my list of stupid things to do before I die.”
