Oh ok I see what's going on here...


Cause you know I thought the lead singer of Pendulum prances around on stage like a unicorn shouting 5 words every two minutes with his Jason Statham hands...or is the lead singer the guy with the keytar? Not sure, I mean I did deal with a huge amount of red and blue epilepsy, I thought they were decent at best but I'll be nice, not say anything bad and bite my tounge.


 If Pendulum is so great how come they don't have their own US tour?  Linkin Park came to THEM and asked THEM if they would join the ATS NA tour as an OPENING ACT.  Seriously Marcus get your head out of the clouds, I've never seen anyone complain the way you've done.  When has any, ANY band have a backup singer?  Bass, guitar, drums, maybe but lead singer?  Wow dude just wow.

FYI Marcus...I'm in the UK and leaving for Las Vegas next Thursday to see LP + The Prodigy at the MGM arena. It's costing my husband well over £1.500 for the 2 of us. So I really hope the gig is on or I too will be a bit miffed! lol XXX

Well said ErinArelius!  Well y'all can enjoy sitting at home and blogging about not seeing LP . . . while the Mrs. and I go see PENDULUM's DJ at FUR tonight because apparently they're not letting a little thing like no concert hall stop them from playing with their fans!  AHAHAHAHAHHAA  . . .. enjoy the silence while I loose my s&*% until till 3 am!  Sayonara suckers!  Ok maybe that was immature . . . but whatevs!

Sorry I didn't mean to attack your marriage... I apologize for that.  You seem more mature however... haha.


And their #2 singer is their main rapper. Mike does not have the same range as Chester, very different tones, and Mike doesn't scream.  Fans are difficult and they can't please everyone. If they were to have done that (which is impossible due to vocal differences) most fans would accuse them of being 'sellouts' and not cancelling the show because they want the money. Yeah?

Brad called into a DC radio station today to explain what happened... You can hear the interview on DC101's website

I am wife of Marcus - I can assure you we did not marry young.  The point is, jessiexo, that Pendulum is from Australia, and they do not tour the United States.  The only time we have been able to see them, we had to fly to Miami.  And we did.   We are true fans.  We like Linkin Park, and the chance to see them together was just such and unbelievable, once-in-a lifetime experience, and I am indeed devastated.   I do understand the importance of health, but come on - thousands of people are waiting for this and they can't utilize their number two singer?   They could have given a choice of refund or not, for those who had to have Chaz or nothing.  For the rest of us - it would have been nice to have the option.  I doubt I will get another chance to see Pendulum play in a large arena before I am old and shriveled.   I am not hating on LP - I am just sad and disappointed.
