Recently, following fans’ backlash over ticket scalpers, Bikini Kill made a statement, apologizing for the negative experience:
“Hi everyone, we wanted to apologize to anyone who had a bad experience trying to get tickets to our upcoming shows. We weren’t aware of the pre-sale for people with a certain credit card in NY until it was too late and that will not happen in the future. Also as soon as we realized there were problems we tried to put as many obstacles in front of scalpers as we could and are trying to figure out a better solution going forward. Thanks for all the interest and support of these shows – it is beyond anything we expected and we are excited to play for you!”
Additionally, in light of the Bikini Kill reunion, Hole’s Courtney Love rehashed some age-old beef. On an Instagram post, Love called Bikini Kill frontwoman Kathleen Hanna and the rest of the band “total amateurs.”
