Bikini Kill apologize for ticket sale issues, promise “better solution going forward”
Bikini Kill finally reunited and announced their first shows in over 20 years last week, including two in NYC and two in LA (the second LA show was added after the first sold out). Most shows sold out almost instantly, leaving many fans frustrated, and Bikini Kill have now issued an apology, which also says that they weren’t aware there would be an American Express presale for the Brooklyn show. They write:
Hi everyone, we wanted to apologize to anyone who had a bad experience trying to get tickets to our upcoming shows. We weren’t aware of the pre-sale for people with a certain credit card in NY until it was too late and that will not happen in the future. Also as soon as we realized there were problems we tried to put as many obstacles in front of scalpers as we could and are trying to figure out a better solution going forward. Thanks for all the interest and support of these shows – it is beyond anything we expected and we are excited to play for you!
The really good news is here is that the phrases “will not happen in the future” and “better solution going forward” seem to imply more reunion shows are on the way! Let’s hope.
