Cocteau Twins at Coachella ... Cancelled


This is a brief addendum to the last entry that I probably should have posted sooner. For undisclosed personal reasons, Liz Fraser has opted not to perform at the Coachella Festival. That effectively means that there will be no Cocteau Twins reunion there. Given the lateness of the cancellation, no other group will perform in their place.

Luckily, I hadn’t yet purchased airline or concert tickets. A number of the people who did so with more alacrity are, to varying degrees, disappointed, annoyed, and pissed. I can’t say I blame them, but I do wonder whether some of them have taken things a little too far by psychoanalyzing Ms. Fraser and suggesting that her pulling out was some sort of “diva” move. In the absence of any information, such speculation is not warranted…
