The Temper Trap move London gig venue

Band will now play Heaven instead of Relentless Garage

The Temper Trap have moved the venue of their September 23 gig in London.

The band were due to play the capital’s Relentless Garage, but the gig will now take place at Heaven, which has a bigger capacity.

Tickets for the original venue will still be valid for the Heaven gig, and a batch of new tickets have also gone on sale.

In an interview in this week’s issue of NME (out nationwide on August 26), the Australian band revealed how a chance meeting with Beyonce in Japan recently has given them hope that the two acts may work together in the future.

“We were at a party and she was there,” singer Dougy Mandagi said of the encounter, which was also attended by Grizzly Bear.

Drummer Toby Dundas added that, although the band are a little bit daunted by the other musicians they’re mixing with, they’re still enjoying the attention. “We’re slowly learning how it works,” he said.

Tickets for The Temper Trap‘s gig at London Heaven are on sale now.
