Hidden Orchestra Crashes Out
Scottish-based electronic jazz collective Hidden Orchestra had to cancel four shows of its European tour following a traffic accident near the Serbian capital of Belgrade.
The accident happened April 7 while the act was traveling between its shows in Budapest and Istanbul.
Yagiz Ipek from tour promoter Charmenko told Pollstar that none of the band members had any serious injuries, although the sound engineer was hospitalized with “five or six broken ribs.”
Apart from the Istanbul show, the gigs in Bulgaria and two Greek shows were also scrapped.
The touring party, minus the sound engineer, flew back to the UK for a show at London’s Village Underground April 18.
The next shows in Lithuania, Germany and Belgium are expected to happen as scheduled.
