EDGUY's Stockholm Concert Downgraded - Jan. 30, 2009
EDGUY's February 4, 2009 concert in Stockholm, Sweden has been moved from the 1,200-plus-capacity Arenan (the venue can reportedly hold up to 3,000 people due to its adjustable walls and curtains) to the 600-capacity Klubben. The band's management said in a statement, "When Tobias [Sammet, EDGUY frontman] found out that the show will take place in exactly the same room they played on the last tour and remembered the odd feelings he had when being on stage, he had a student of supernatural science investigate the place and he attested that there are several subterranean water veins crossing right under the stage. Besides that, Tobias — who is a practicing Feng shui-ist — could not accept putting the stage vice versa to the other side of the stage. He willingly accepted to play Klubben, though, and apologizes for the inconvenience."
Tobias Sammet commented: "I wanna state that it has absolutely nothing to do with the merchandise concessions of 35% that they take at the main room which would have meant the shirts would have been enormously expensive for our fans. That's just a nice side effect; they will be much cheaper now!"
