Boo to Garbage!

Shirley Manson
So, fine, Shirley Manson and crew had to postpone last Friday’s show at the Paramount in Seattle due to sickness. That’s fine, and us fans can understand postponing a concert, but there’s no word on it anywhere on Garbage.com, the band’s official site. Not one “sorry, we’ll be back” or even word on why they cancelled. It’s disappointing enough that the show was postponed, it was after all the first US tour date on Garbage’s Bleed Like Me tour, but keeping your fans in the dark just ain’t right, especially for such an Internet-friendly band. Since missing the gig, the band has put up several updates on their site, such as a Stupid Girl video, and the news that Why Do You Love Me hit #7 in the UK charts. But c’mon now, us fans in Seattle were waiting all weekend to hear if the show would be on anytime, since the Seattle P-I reported the show may have been rescheduled for Saturday night. A simple, “we’re sorry, we’re sick, we’ll reschedule” would have sufficed. Oh yeah, and Ticketmaster called me today, to let me know that the show was postponed. Well, gee thanks, if only you’d told me BEFORE I drove all the way out to the Paramount for nothing.

So Shirley, to make it up to me, I’ll take a private concert from you and the boys next time you’re in town…
