"New Zealand rocker Ladyhawke may sing about Paris burning, but on Wednesday it was New York City that was on fire. At the headliner of the "Perez Hilton Presents" concert at the Fillmore at Irving Plaza, Ladyhawke was well-worth her witching-hour performance, featuring crowd-friendly renditions of "Back of the Van" and "My Delirium." Unfortunately, fellow co-headliner Ida Maria was a no-show because of illness. No matter. The two surprises Hilton pulled out of his sleeve certainly made up for it.

"I'm marveling that I was able to pull it off, because I've never put on a tour before," Hilton told MTV News. "The reason why I'm doing the tour, the reason I have a record label, the reason why I write about music on my Web site is because I think music lovers like sharing good music with other music lovers."...

...Last-minute surprise act Little Boots hit the stage sans her band mates (they were stuck across town) and performed solo with only a piano to accompany her. She thanked Hilton with a run through a haunting cover of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" and was followed by another surprise in Kat DeLuna, whose high-octane hip-swirling show made the walls sweat." [MTV]

By "across town", they mean at Bowery Ballroom where Little Boots also played on Wednesday night (9/16). Ida Maria was in fact a no-show, though the type of illness is unclear - it may have been a case of Perez-itis because she seemed to be doing okay when she performed at the Betsey Johnson fashion show a night or two earlier. Officially it became this:

Ida Maria will not be finishing the current Perez Hilton Presents Tour. She is suffering from total exhaustion and will be heading home to Norway to rest and be under Doctor's care. Her personal statement to everyone is:

Dear Friends and Fans. I am so very sorry but I cannot finish this tour. After touring in Scandinavia, Europe, the UK, Australia, Japan and the USA for 3 years straight I am just completely exhausted. I have learned that I am not a superwoman.

I love all the bands, musicians and crew on this tour. Go see these bands! I will be back and look forward to playing you my music both new and old. The new music is in forefront of my mind. Thank you all again. See you soon. I wish you peace.

Are Semi Precious Weapons an Of Montreal tribute act?

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2009 2:51 AM

if the two members of vivian girls who are not the drummer had a baby, she would look like ladyhawke

No, they are a bullshit tribute act.

Can we get a list of the artists who turned down this tour because they didn't want to be associated with this douchebag?

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2009 6:33 AM

@ 6:33-
That would be everyone but the "artists" listed.

Perez Hilton can choke on a dick.

I would've gone had I known that a performance of Hedwig and the Angry Inch was the special guest...

Those topless floozies were doing coke in the backstage bathrooms with two old bearded 40 year old men. It was hella creepy being around that.

those topless girls are with semi-precious weapons

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2009 10:47 AM

also you can see the topless girls with their clothes on, watching SPW, in one of those SPW pics, which is nice to add to the narrative of how those girls got naked.

I don't think they are sponsored by Outback Steakhouse.

Even with all the "surprise" nudity this tour is just fucking dumb.

Maybe the most annoying lineup and "promoter" in music history

fuck off with this lame crap.

it kills me that semi precious weapons put on such a fantastic live show and justin tranter is damn fine ... but i refuse to go near anything remotely associated with perez hilton.

The lead singer of SPW looks like a young Mugatu from zoolander

Posted by Josh | September 23, 2009 3:22 PM

Some of the cream of the crap as to why a good portion of NYC music is garbage. Fabulous clothes there kids.
