Two Door Cinema Club cancels due to illness. City and Colour moves into headline position. Foals joins the Splendour 2014 lineup. Splendour In The Grass has received news that Alex Trimble of Two Door Cinema Club is in hospital in the UK. As a result the band is no longer able to make the trip to Australia for their exclusive appearance at Splendour 2014. The band sent us this message to share with Splendour ticket holders… “It is with a heavy heart that we are going to need to cancel our upcoming trip to Australia for Splendour in the Grass. Alex collapsed at Seattle airport on the way to London and has been hospitalised with a chronic stomach complaint. We are devastated to have to cancel this show that we were so looking forward to. We can only apologise and hope for your understanding at this time. Love TDCC x” We have no further information about Alex’s health at this time but we send him and the band our best and wish him a speedy recovery! In light of this news there will be some changes to the lineup as it means there is a gap in the playing times… And up step Foals! Our eleventh hour saviours had a weekend off their European Festival headline tour, so decided that flying to the country that gave them their first Number 1 album was the right thing to do. They’re going to fly in for 48 hours & give us one of their internationally renowned ‘extreme level’ live performances. Give it up for the UKs Best Live Band!! We are stoked to present Foals exclusively at Splendour 2014! We are also thrilled to announce that City and Colour will move into the headline position on Saturday 26th July to close the Amphitheatre Stage. Dallas Green began touring Australia as City and Colour less than four years ago, and in that time has seen an incredible rise in popularity; not only boasting sell-out rooms time and again, but building his audience by thousands with each visit. Starting with an impressive 10,000 sales on his first headline tour, then more than 20,000 on his return, his December 2013 national tour, in support of the album The Hurry and The Harm (Dine Alone/Cooking Vinyl) which debuted at #2 on the Australian charts, saw him perform for over 30,000 fans nationwide. In between visits to Australia, Dallas and his band, which includes Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather), Dante Schwebel (Spanish Gold, Dan Auerbach), Doug MacGregor (The Constantines) and Matt Kelly, have been performing to huge crowds at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch and Lollapalooza. On this tour, Dallas Green plays just one sideshow, a one-off solo performance at the prestigious Sydney Opera House which sold out in a matter of hours, and the only performance with the full band will be headlining Splendour In The Grass on Saturday night. If you haven’t seen his live show yet, now’s your chance! Splendour sincerely thanks all these artists for their assistance.
