UN ACCIDENTE DE TRÁFICO OBLIGA A SUSPENDER LA GIRA EUROPEA DE THE INDEPENDENTS
22/11/04

LUn accidente de tráfico, ocurrido el viernes 19 de noviembre en Inglaterra y saldado con el brazo y hombro del guitarrista Willy Gordon Harper fracturados, ha obligado a cancelar el resto de la gira europea de la banda de punk-rock de Carolina del Norte The Independents.

Así nos lo ha hecho saber Lead Producciones, la promotora encargada de la parte española de dicha gira, mediante un comunicado. El grupo tenía proyectadas tres actuaciones en nuestro país, una de ellas en la ciudad de Murcia.

Esta es la nota remitida por el management de The Independents:

Dear promoters,
Tragic news reached us last night.

North Carolina rock band The Independents had an accident while on tour in the United Kingdom,.on 19 November. Their tourbus apparently skidded on ice and the vehicle flipped over several times. Guitarist William “Willy” Gordon Harper was taken into a hospital seriously injured and with multiple fractures on an arm and shoulder..Their driver was also seriously injured and taken to a hospital. He sustained a serious head injury. The other members of the band sustained multiple bruises and where obviously in shock. Guitarist “Willy” will be flown home to the USA as soon as he can leave the hospital.The band being in no position to continue the tour have to cancel all the remainder dates of their 2004 european tour. The band, however, wishes to thank all the pomoters who booked shows on their tour for the support they gave them. They hope to return to Europe somewhere in 2005.

We are obviously very sorry to have to transmit this news to you.

Sincerely,


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
