Cat Power tour will go on, sans expensive gorillas

Cat Power

It seems Cat Power’s European dates are officially back on again, setbacks be damned, and so will begin as billed in Amsterdam on 26 Nov. Power – real name Chan Marshall – who last week said the tour might be cancelled over bankruptcy and health concerns – has since reassured fans it’ll go ahead, but without its expensive “stage presentation”, aka a light show and gorilla graphics.

Says Marshall via Instagram: “All I wanna do is sing my damn songs a give my best to the fans that love me. Not having funds to have my stupid light show for fans has put me in a corner. But I was born in a corner… refuse to lose”.
