Eagles of Death Metal at Spaceland on Monday? Forget it. Most likely.

May 22, 2010 |  1:34 pm

Earlier this week, Pop & Hiss told you of a strong rumor that the Eagles of Death Metal would perform at Spaceland on Monday, appearing to help celebrate the final night of a residency from Eagles of Death Metal pals Sweethead. That latter, of course, features Queens of the Stone Age regular Troy Van Leeuwen.

But late on Friday, the following bad news was sent to the Pop & Hiss HQ via the comments section from the band's management:  

"Unfortunately EODM had to pull off the bill and will not be performing Monday night. But the other bands are and they are all equally amazing!"

It has been confirmed that the comment did originate from the band's management at Dangerbird. While it does validate that the Eagles of Death Metal were indeed intending to appear, there were no further details available.

The Eagles of Death Metal appearance was hyped by Sweethead on the act's Twitter, and there are plenty of Eagles and Queens of the Stone Age friends on the bill, so some surprises are not to be counted out. Yet Pop & Hiss is now being assured that the Eagles of Death Metal will no longer be one of them.
