The concert in Basel was planned on August 18th but due to visa issues ROB couldn't leave the UK after playing an incredible show on the mainstage of the We Out Here Festival in front of 6000+ people. The Band came to Basel, we hosted them for two days . This was part of the deal with the agency. Even tho the concert was cancelled we sticked to the deal. Some bandmembers are good friends, so it was natural to help out. The visa problems got solved and the Band moved on, played their gig in Geneva two days later. We were not satisfied at all of course, sitting on unpaid bills but most important, no ROB for us. The tourplan was packed, only one "off-day" available and at first the agency didn't want to offer this day. Then it was clear that financially (since the disaster on Sunday) there was no way the agency nor we could afford a 2nd concert in Basel. This is when the Bandleader jumped in and told me "No worries, we really want to play this gig. ROB belongs on stage at Kaschemme and we have to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Konzeptlos presents concert series. Pay our our fee to the agency and let them finance the travel with it. We will play for free and f*cking rock the club wth you" Wow! We are speechless... this is gonna be something else. ROB & Band- THANK YOU SO MUCH.
