Death Grips No Longer Playing Lollapalooza

Posted by - 10:28 AM on 08/03/13
Looks like Death Grips will not be playing Lollapalooza.
Last night, Death Grips were tapped to play an officially sanctioned Lollapalooza aftershow at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago. They didn't show up. According to several reports from Reddit and Twitter, after learning that the band wouldn't play, fans proceeded to destroy their equipment, including a drum kit that was presumably Zach Hill's. [...] According to Lollapalooza's representatives, the band "chose not to arrive in Chicago" and will not play the festival.

This is one of the oddest band no shows I think I've ever seen.

At first I thought this was some odd display of symbolism that Death Grips fans would defend or something. Then I saw the pieces of the drum kit some fan took....then I wondered why there were drums there if the band didn't come to Chicago....

What the fuck happened here?

Wow. Amazing Bottom Lounge allowed that to happen. They're usually a pretty strict (Live Nation) venue.

I always hear stories about this band. I caught them at Sasquatch, and they were late to the set. Then they walked on and started their first song, looked at the side stage and then dropped the mic in the middle and walked off. After the crowd was cheering for like 10 minutes, they came back on and performed.

Such fucking bullshit. I bought three tickets to the after show like 2 months ago. All I was looking forward to for a long time. Shit man beware came on I thought they were just building up an epic start by not going on stage...by the third song I knew it was a no show. If you cancel a show that's fine shit happens but don't make me wait till fucking 1 am to find out, at least I'm getting refunded but fuck death grips.

This sucks, but it's by no means a surprise that Death Grips is the band involved.

People are going to feel like real dicks if this ends up being because of some kind of family emergency.
