Last week's Chicago show (more by James Richards)

Last minute NYC show cancellation "due to illness". More details as they are announced including a possible make up date.

We did just catch them in Chicago though and in Texas and at Sasquatch.

Check out their new video for "Pitbull Terrier" instead, below...

AKA: we sold a total of 212 tickets.

Bet their label still thinks signing them to a 10 record deal was a good idea. This band had 9 minutes of fame.

Being shitty isn't an illness.

IT'S A FUCKING PLAGUE and it's destroying music as we know it.

The show was very sold out

They contracted MOCS (MOrrissey Cancellation Syndrome).

6:45 shows the average internet guy that pretends to be a cynical, know-it-all industry person is actually a fucking retard.

as 6:47 points out this show has been sold out for months. it sold out soon after the on sale. idiot.

^Well if you and 6:47 are 2 of those people who bought tickets to this show then honestly you really are in no position to call anyone else a retard or an idiot

That is like pot kettle black X 1000000000

@6:45 You are an idiot. This show sold out in 3 minutes when it went on sale 4 months ago and the previous show at Irivng Plaza sold out a month in advance. Irving only holds 1000 peeps. love them or hate them, Die Antwoord in NYC can sell that 4x over easy.

7:17 and 9:27 work for the bands NYC 'street team' and they're both from the south west.

No original NYer would defend such garbage. Or, they're 17?

Is this the band who wears blackface in one of their videos? If so typical South African idiots.

"AKA: we sold a total of 212 tickets."

Actually the show was sold out and going for over $200 on stubhub.

Idiot.

^ To a racist fuckhead like you, of course.

Try due to we sold 340 tickets in a 1000 room. What "illness"? Why be so vague? "Due to illness" is such a lame-o BS reason to cancel a show.

Posted by D | June 11, 2014 1:29 AM

Laryngitis, 1:29am, is an acceptable reason to cancel a sold out show. It shows that the band wants to give their fans their money's worth.

Moron.

Ninja has a tattoo on his SCHLONG.

The weren't wearing black face. They were painted black. And painted white. The lead singer has a yin/yang tattoo on his back which it was that was referencing. Funny how people who hate on them turn it into a racial issue that doesn't exist. Do black people also have yellow eyes and blonde hair or are you reaching? They are an art group and they can paint themselves anything they want.

AEG roolz. Bowery Presents droolz.

Hey 11:45pm one of them was wearing blackface, so you can shut the fuck up and stop being an apologist for them.

There. That's blackface. If you want to deny it you're an idiot. I could give a fuck if the lead singer has a ying/yang tattoo, ying/yang my ass. Yeah the guy painted himself white to try and fail to cover up that the chick is wearing blackface, and he'd point to his tattoo as his pathetic defense. He wants to make dupes like you think it's "ying/yang" n he's succeeded with you. You're most likely a troll but I could see you truly believing it was ying/yang.

Yes, they're an art group who can paint themselves whatever they want...and I'm an American who can say whatever the fuck I want which is speak out against their use of blackface thus practice of racism, ok? And you can say I'm wrong, and so on and so forth. But facts are facts:

They're from South Africa which has a very recent history of apartheid and has unofficial racial segregation today, has countless racists (like we do), so it's not much of a stretch to say racism is alive and well in South Africa/ns - it most certainly is in Die Antwoord. Too bad you're too stupid or your head is too far stuck up their asses to see that. Again, you're probably a troll.

5:44pm Irving Plaza is a Live Nation NYC venue not an AEG Live venue.
