Razorlight Love Canadians

Razorlight felt so damn bad about canceling their Toronto gig that they are giving fans the ability to enter a contest to see them in London. The contest ends today so get cracking Canuks!

Here are the details:

Toronto Gig Information

As a gesture to fans who came to the Razorlight show at the Mod Club in Toronto on March 1st and found that it had been cancelled at the last minute, the band have decided they want to offer four fans the chance to see Razorlight play in London. After arriving in Toronto in a blizzard and having to pull the show when Johnny Borrell and Bjorn Agren came down with flu, they wanted to find a way to make up for the loss of the show. Ticketholders can enter the contest simply by sending an e-mail to and sighting the barcode number on their ticket (12 digit number, right side of the ticket) along with full contact information. Anyone who went to the show can in addition post on myspace. Applications as pairs will also be considered if both people had Toronto tickets. On Friday March 23rd March the submitted e-mails will be pooled, and two barcode numbers will be chosen at random. The winners will be informed that afternoon. So, what exactly will you win? Flights, and accommodations for 2 nights in London along with tickets to see Razorlight play at Earls Court on April 8th. Its sold out with 17,000 people so it will be an amazing night. You’ll need passports and to be able to travel to London leaving April 7 for a couple of days. Razorlight are also going to try to reschedule the Toronto show as soon as we can.

Johnny Borrell says: " We were really looking forward to the show in Toronto and I was gutted that we had to cancel at the last moment. I know how frustrating it is for the fans to have show pulled at the last moment. I saw the Raveonettes do this once, when we supporting them in Bristol a few years ago, and I know how frustrating it is for the band and the fans. It’s the first show that we’ve pulled due to illness for over 2 years, and we just wanted to do something to try and make up for it particularly to the fans who undertook the journey through the blizzard and snow that night. Hopefully, we’ll be back in may sometime and we will see you there.”
