Front 242 and Underviewer announce a new series of shows

In a message on Facebook Front 242 announces that they have canceled the 2 concerts in Kortrijk at De Kreun (Belgium) which were taking place today and tomorrow.

The band’s singer Jean-Luc De Meyer (born 1957 in Brussels) is hospitalized since last night “and his health is worrying” so the band says.

Front 242: “We are aware that all our fans were looking forward to this concert and we are all disappointed. Let’s all keep our hearts with Jean-Luc.”

The whole Side-Line team wishes Jean-Luc all the best and a good recovery.



Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
