wembley can only hold a certain amount of events each year, most of them being sport of some description (mainly football).
due to this bands/artists probably have signed up at least 12-18 months in advance to hold events there.
they will return to wembley at some point I'm sure but due to them wanting to rearrange quickly, they opted for a venue that was available in a few months rather than waiting a couple of years for the same venue.
sure its not the best venue but at least its a gig this year, something none of us really expected. and at least you can "ping the money straight back" to go to the gig, others who could have made the original dates now can't make these dates and have to wait for another time.
Very true, and I've only just noticed that the new dates are actually this year rather than next...d'oh!! So I can see why the band had to grab somewhere/anywhere available to do them this year now. Kind of makes it a moot point for me now anyway as I can't do September this year anyway
I know its nobody's fault, and the band certainly don't owe us anything at all. As you said, new dates are better than no dates at all. I think I'm just still crushed by how amazing the Wembley weekend was going to be, doing both shows, having the hotel booked for both nights, meeting up with other fans, recapturing the magic of 2008...*sigh*... what could have been...
