Cockney Rejects cancel March 2013 UK tour
Posted: 28th December 2012
East London's Oi! outfit have cancelled their rescheduled March 2013 UK tour
Originally due to tour in October 2012, Cockney Rejects were forced to postpone the dates due to clashes with post-production work on their film 'East End Babylon' (www.eastendbabylon.co.uk). The rescheduled dates were due to take place in March, but the band have just announced that these dates will also not take place due to a disagreement with their (now ex) agents.
The East London Oi! pioneers - staunch West Ham fans, were unimpressed with the high cost of ticket prices and booking fees to their shows and have announced that they will be managing any forthcoming tours (see Mick's postponement message, above), but for 2013 it seems like there will be just one live performance at Blackpool's massive punk weekender - the Rebellion Festival 2013. Taking place from Thursday 8th August until Sunday 11th August at the Winter Gardens, the 2013 event will also feature: The Damned, GBH, The Exploited, The Casualties, Lene Lovich, UK Subs and many more. Tickets cost £30 for Thursday tickets, £55 for Friday, Saturday or Sunday tickets or £130 for the weekend (limited early-bird price).
Ticket-holders for the Rejects' 2013 UK tour should obtain a refund from their point of purchase.
Update: November 2013 dates announced
Joining the Blackpool date, the band will now also play a short November 2013 UK tour, with dates in Wolverhampton, Bristol, Carlisle, Dundee and Greater Manchester, with more expected to be announced.
