American blues rock singer Lincoln Durham, will not be appearing at The Oakwood, on High Street West, Glossop, on Saturday (August 31) as planned, due to an airline refusing to let him board his flight with his instruments.
A spokesman for the musician said: “We are very sorry to say that due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to cancel Lincoln’s UK tour.
“We arrived at the airport yesterday, airline documents in hand showing his equipment was within their own size and weight regulations for musical instruments, but in the end they chose to disregard that information completely and told us it would be $3,600 to fly the gear, and would not accept one of the cases at all.
“We are beyond devastated that this has happened as we have flown internationally on the same airline with Lincoln’s gear in the past without any trouble.”
Anyone with an advance ticket for one of the Glossop show can claim a free digital download of Lincoln’s new album, Exodus of the Deemed Unrighteous, before it is released on October 22.
