Andrew Bird cancels Stubb's show to film FX show 'Fargo'
Andrew Bird was supposed to perform at Stubb's supporting his new album "My Finest Work Yet" this fall, but the concert is one of a string of shows the singer-songwriter was forced to cancel after being cast in the FX show "Fargo."
The official Facebook post about the event from promoter C3 Presents was updated to say, "the filming schedule conflicts with several dates on his current tour including his October 30th performance at Stubb's. We apologize for the inconvenience." According to the post, ticket buyers will automatically be issued refunds for the event, but they might take 7 to 10 days to process.
Bird will play an undertaker named Thurman Smutney, a character who, Pitchfork reports, was written specifically for him.
We’ve been out there playing “My Finest Work Yet” when this came out of nowhere. I’ve been asked to play an undertaker in 1950 Kansas City named Thurman Smutney in the 4th season of@FargoFX. Cant pass up a challenge like this and the show is outstanding so...pic.twitter.com/TVqU5KLNxQ— Andrew Bird (@andrewbird)July 18, 2019
Consequence of Sound has more details about the new season of the show, which also features Chris Rock.
