Razorlight: Ain’t Gonna Play Neo-Soviet City Either

The Star Online reports that Russian corruption has struck again. First it was Eric Clapton, now Razorlight:

Razorlight has cancelled a show in Moscow, Russia last week due to some government interference.

The group was due to perform at the Railway Department venue in Moscow last Friday, but pulled out at the last minute.

It was reported that the band was asked to hand over a certain amount of money to obtain the necessary permits.

“The permits were denied because, allegedly, in order for the gig to go ahead the ‘government’ required a further ‘permit’ costing an astronomical amount of cash,” a statement from concert promoters said.
