Ida Maria gig postponed due to ‘band revolt’

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)
