I'm not pleased... okay, so that's a HUGE understatement, but if I start ranting about how severely pissed I am, I don't think I'd be able to stop. :'(

And I just read this on Ticketnet:

"CONCERT REPORTE JANVIER 2009 à Confirmer", which according to Babelfish means "CONCERT DEFERS JANUARY 2009 To confirm". I guess we'll know more after the press conference.

I feel the cold ground underneath my boots, and for no good reason it reminds me of you.

That would be a head shot, really xD

Btw where is this official announcement supposed to be released? Their website? Ticketnet? Avosbillets? Yoshiki mobile (and only those with premium access will be able to access it? meh

Jesus.....this is REALLY getting ridiculous. After giving us those great news and sky-high hopes they POSTPONE it?! I definitely will go to their show IF there is even one, but I will not forget this...postponed show twice in a year...man, that's too much.

Lets wait for the press conference. But it is really funny because nobody really believed that the concert will happen and a few days ago they said "Oi. Tickets go on sale on 10th." and now they are saying "Oi. It was just a joke. HAHAHAHAHA."
Im glad that I didnt book anything and I can understand that everyone who booked already is slightly pissed off now.

in the mail from avosbillets it said that there will be an anouncement on the official band page...

and I guess it won't be a press conference but only something on the webpage...

I wonder what happened.. I mean one week ago they said it will happen and now it doesn't ...  :(

Haha, now that I finally found a way to get money for it.

It seemed like it was gonna happen this time D: Finally, with the ticket sale and stuff, and the posters in Paris.
I wonder what caused this sudden (?) postponement.

You know what? Problem is all the hype they have put on the show. First, this completely absurd delay in the tickets sale (remember beginning of october?). Then, the even more absurd "priority code" (it looks like a scam all together), which made us think that there was a lot of demand for the tickets (otherwise it wouldn't have made sense putting codes in the ticket sale procedure). Apart from all this, BIG banners, advertising and even in the streets of Paris.

You who didn't book anything yet, you lucky bastards!

I came so close to booking stuff, thank goodness I didn't.

If X Japan ever play in Europe - it won't be at Bercy and it will be under a cloud of shame.

I still don't understand why they put up all the posters... >_>
And all the announcements...

I really can't believe it's actually being postponed.

I dont think so, Ticketnet says its delayed till Januari, and its probably going to be in Bercy after all

You've obviously never been to a Babyshambles concert.  :P

I'd laugh really hard if it had ANYTHING to do with the hologram system (which I doubt, but that was my first thought for some reason).

That's surely a blessing. It would be an exaggeration to call that shit music for starters :)

I think the next time I book the plane/train/whatever the day before the concert... well I had a really nice weekend in Paris in July and I luckily I didn't book anything yet... I'm sorry for all those that lost money but despite of that I'm very disappointed..

maybe they made the preregistration to see how many people are interested in tickets and realised that they would sell not enough? which is not really a big surprise when you look at the timing...

But who says that it's REALLY going to happen in january >>

Anyway I too think it is all about selling enough tickets. Perhaps they realized, as Katrin has stated, that the demand wasn't strong enough and decided to postpone the show.

So, seems that I can cancel my hotel pretty easy, but with the flight it doesn't look that good (lucky for me it wasn't THAT expensive).
Right now I'm still pissed, but you know what would really pisses me off? If I cancel now my hotel and flight and then they decide to send Toshi with T-Earth.

I had exactly the same with Ra:IN in July...

DAMN, I really wanted to go.

(I'd go for T.Earth tough... XDDD maybe.)

CONCERT REPORTE JANVIER 2009 à Confirmer

Too close to 'recover' the money XD (tho I doubt January will be the month, they already have concerts in other places in that month)

If they postponed it for being afraid they won´t sell any tickets, then January is too soon, imo...
