    Default la roux cancelled

    "I'm gutted that we cannot play at my favourite festival. The show we played there in 2010 was one of the best I've ever done. Things are progressing well with the new record but I just don't have the time to finish it AND prepare a new set for Coachella. If they'll have us back we'd love to see you there." -la roux

    the lineup page has been adjusted http://www.coachella.com/lineup

    I think I'll be celebrating January 30th as Anything is Possible day for the rest of my life. Mindless potential.

    I wonder if they will get replaced? I mean they were on the second line.

    What? You'd think she'd have that figured out before committing to a two week period. At least there's an explanation. Beats those mysterious drop-offs that never get explained.

    cat power maybe moved to Sunday, i haven't checked their open dates but they were also removed which normally means getting shifted around

    This saddens me deeply. But I would hope that a replacement is in order due to their relatively high billing.

    I could see The xx maybe being a valid replacement. Their new album is rumored to be more dancey and they would probably get a similar billing to La Roux.

    As am I. To be honest, due to their statement claiming that they were trying to finish their music in order to be ready for festival season, I was surprised to not see them on the lineup. Also, given their veteran-status to Coachella, they might get the chance now.

    Shouldn't artists initially assure Paul T or whoever three months in advance that they're ready to play?

    Illnesses may happen. I'm sure she didn't cancel cause she had a camping trip or something to attend.

    "Things are progressing well with the new record but I just don't have the time to finish it AND prepare a new set for Coachella. If they'll have us back we'd love to see you there."

    Sounds to me they're cancelling because they aren't prepared enough. Pretty shitty excuse, assuming it's true, if you ask me. I am not a La Roux fan, but c'mon now....

    I agree but that's not the point. La Roux isn't my thing, but the fact that they supposedly do not have time to prepare a new set is a flimsy excuse / reason for dropping off.

    It only took her 3 weeks to drop. She couldve been a bitch and dropped out the week before. If they don't replace her, she's a bitch automatically
