September 5th, 2012Sadly, there was a shooting outside the Metropolis venue last night in Montreal, where The Offspring played on Monday and were set to play again tonight, September 5. (more info here). Our hearts go out to the deceased victim's family and we are wishing the other victim a speedy recovery.
Metropolis is now a crime scene. The Offspring have no access to the venue, which still contains last night's production set-up and the band's instruments and gear from Monday night's show. While it is no longer possible to stage a show at Metropolis, the band have found gear to borrow and will make tonight's show happen at The Olympia instead (1004 St-Catherine Est, Montréal, Québec, H2L 2G2).
Metropolis tickets will be honored at The Olympia and tickets will also be available for purchase at the door.
Tonight's live acoustic TV performance and interview on MusiquePlus will continue as scheduled.
