Oasis ‘Bewildered’ after China Gigs Cancelled

From Reuters:

Rock band said on Monday it was “bewildered” by China’s decision to cancel two concerts scheduled to take place on the mainland next month.

The group had expected to play in Beijing on April 3 and Shanghai on April 5.

“Representatives from the Chinese government have revoked the performance licenses already issued for the band and ordered their shows in both Beijing and Shanghai to be immediately cancelled,” Oasis said in a statement.

“The Chinese authorities’ action in cancelling these shows marks a reversal of their decision regarding the band which has left both Oasis and the promoters bewildered.”
