The White Lies concert at Moon Star Studios, Oct 30 has been officially cancelled.

According to the event facebook page created by Bangkok event organizers Dudesweet written in Thai, transportation costs for the band were supposed to be shared between event organizers in China and Singapore.

Since White Lies gigs in China and Singapore were both cancelled, Dudesweet were left with the whole expense that would have driven ticket costs up to atleast B2,100.

With the combined cost of the venue and band and the inflated ticket price, the show could not go on.
