First, we must express again how overwhelmed we all are by the response and support Belly has received since announcing we would be reuniting to play some shows- it has been quite beyond anything we’d imagined. We’ve been very frustrated by what has apparently happened with ticket-buying ‘bots’ and the ‘secondary market’ scalping sales- until yesterday we’d never even heard about this situation (scam……)! It has nothing to do with making music, playing music, seeing music, and is so incredibly lame. But aside from the ticket-bots skewing the sales, the huge interest and enthusiasm is fantastic, and its become obvious that a second show for NYC is warranted- and that’s exactly what we are working to make happen right now. We’ll post details as soon as we have ’em- in the meantime, please don’t go paying an outrageous sum on the scalper market for tickets!
We’ve had some inquiries about t-shirts, etc. in the UK and Europe (and expressions of dismay over the shipping charges from the US…) and we’re happy to say we’ve lined up a UK merch partner and the shop should be up next week- the link will appear in the header menu under ‘SHOP’. And of course, we’ll have t-shirts and stickers and other goodies at the shows this summer.
