Folkestone moves to 2004

Fragile's appearance at Stripes in Folkestone has been rescheduled following recent discussions with the club promoter, and a revised date for the venue will now appear on the band's 2004 itinerary. This decision was taken jointly with the promoter in the light of information concerning an appearance by the Australian Pink Floyd at the Leas Cliff Hall on the 22nd November 2003. It is Fragile's policy to avoid gigging in geographical locations where other progressive or classic rock acts are also due to appear on the same date. The APF date was announced only recently, and it was agreed with the promoter that the date clash would undermine the business viability of the gig at Stripes. We apologise to Yes fans in east Kent for the need to reschedule, and if you are heading to the APF show then 'shine on you crazy diamonds'!
