From Iceland — GusGus Denies That Too Many Tickets Were Sold

GusGus Denies That Too Many Tickets Were Sold

Published June 21, 2011

Icelandic band GusGus, who performed at Nasa last Saturday, say that people being turned away even though they had bought a ticket for the concert was not due to overselling but rather to a scheduling mishap.
Many who went to attend the show have complained that there were two lines for getting into the concert – one for those with tickets, and those who wanted to buy tickets at the door – with the unusual result that some who had already bought tickets were turned away. This has led to complaints that this was due to overselling.
The band has denied that this was the case, Vísir reports.
“It was an unusual concert for GusGus,” the band explained in a statement to the press. “GusGus does not traditionally play a concert at Nasa at 20:00. So two concerts in the same evening led to a misunderstanding among concert-goers. Some of those with tickets for the 20:00 came to the later show. There were also people who sneaked into the show, using various unconventional means.”
The band has promised ticketholders who were turned away a full refund, as well as an invitation to come to the next GusGus concert for free. They furthermore apologise for any inconvenience that was caused.
