Champions League Final means gig is postponed

Ida Maria has had to postpone her gig on May 21 at London’s Kings College following a band revolt because the gig clashes with the Champions League Final.

The group refused to miss the game, so pressured their frontwoman to change the date.

“Personally I don’t give a shit about Chelsea vs Man United but unless we moved the gig I was going to have to play solo,” explained Maria. “Stefan, Johannes and Olle are football mad.”

The gig is rescheduled for June 2 and original tickets will remain valid. Her new single ‘Queen Of The World’ is out on May 12.

The full list of UK dates is as follows:

Carlisle Brick Yard (May 9)

Middlesbrough Metropolis at The Empire (10)

Aberdeen Tunnels (11)

Leeds Cockpit (19)

Oxford Jericho Tavern (20)

Bristol Dot-To-Dot Festival (24)
