International dance supertars Faithless were set to perform at the Puerto Banus bullring in Marbella on July 31. Two days before the gig a message on the bands website announced the event had been cancelled:
“It is with regret that for the first time ever Faithless have to cancel a gig. Due to reasons beyond their control, Faithless will not be performing in Puerto Banus this Saturday.”
The concert, organized by Kings of Production would have been the group’s first ever performance in southern Spain. The show was to be supported by British reggae pioneers Black Slate, as well as Britsih bassline trio Platinum and DJs Tall Paul and Levi Lewis.
Mike Allen, the management representative of Faithless told SpanishNews.es that the cancellation was due to “contractual issues with the promoter”:
“Unfortunately due to contractual issues with the promoter,” According to Allen, Faithless “were left with no choice other than to pull the show” adding that this cancellation was “the first time this has happened in their career.”
Concerts in Marbella appear to have become quite the trend with more than one of them ending up cancelled.
