Aug. 31 Gotye concert moved

An upcoming concert slated for Deer Lake has been moved to the Orpheum in downtown Vancouver.

Gotye, and guests Chairlift and Jonti, were to play the Burnaby venue on Aug. 31.

Live Nation announced Thursday that the show will now take place at the much smaller Orpheum Theatre with a new showtime of 7:30 p.m., one hour later than the original start time.

The concert's seating will be general admission, first come, first seated, and tickets purchased for Deer Lake will be honoured at the door with no exchange necessary.

The first 1,400 people in line will receive wristbands to guarantee them seating on the orchestra level. Doors open 6:30 p.m.

The show is part of the multi-platinum recording artist Gotye's largest tour to date of North America, which includes performances at New York's Radio City Music Hall and Austin City Limits.

The move was made "due to logistical requirements," said a Live Nation representative, by email.

Tickets are $45 plus service charges and are available at www.livenation.com, 1-855-985-5000 and all Ticketmaster outlets.
