The news is just in that the show on 6th October has been cancelled, details below:
Concert in Poznań ultimately cancelled, or how down on national artists in this country has become. Poland was the second country, after Russia, in which for political reasons has been referenced concert Behemoth. I regret to have to announce that on October 6, the team will not play in the Club Eskulap. This morning we with the team to play two concerts in the Club “U Bazyla”, when it’s just not to drive fans. But after a closer hearing in suboptimal in the Club we decided that such a solution would suffer too much, the quality of our concert. At this stage of his career afford it we can’t and we sincerely hope that our fans will understand this, and they wait patiently for the chance to meet with the team.
Facts related to reference two (!) concerts are as follows: at the beginning of the Rector of the Medical University, under the wings of which Club Eskulap, disagreed on 2 October, explaining that this date coincides with the start of the academic year and not fitting for these two events coincided in time. After negotiations conducted by CHURCH Events (concert promoter) of the University authorities, the latter agreed to transfer events on 6 October. We got the approval from the President. The concert sold 700 tickets for the event to the police, everything was dopięte the last button and. .. And then just to our promoter went letter, in which-contrary to earlier findings, the Rector refused to make the concert Club. As the reason given “receive social ‘ event, mentioned about the protests and religious environments the interests of the safety of students and staff of the University.
We have no doubt is a political decision. Anyway, I have reached the US unofficial information that fell to levels higher than the seat of the Rector. It’s not the first time when Poznań mouth down on national artists. Loud case zbojkotowania art “Golgotha” picnic “at the Festival of Malta is just one of these examples. Today we become victims of censorship. Because you still need to call it. Poznań, instead of free culture center, begins to resemble more Ekaterinburg in the Urals (one of the many places in Russia, where so far is due to protests by religious fanatics-was cancelled the concert Behemoth). Article 73 of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, which says: “Everyone has the freedom of artistic creation, research and publish the results thereof, freedom to teach, as well as the use of cultural goods”. In our opinion, the appeal of the concert due to the pressure exerted by a handful of fanatical frustratów is nothing like podtarcie to this article, as well as the entire Constitution, shit.
Here are the contact details for the University’s all concerned, who would like to obtain more detailed explanations concerning the decision of the authorities of the University. Perhaps he betray you, whose political pressure for the cancellation of the event.
