Arcade Fire find themselves with just such a problem this coming weekend. The Quebecan septet are booked to play the Grammy awards in L.A. on Sunday night (or Monday morning GMT) and are also scheduled to perform at the Brit awards in London on Tuesday evening.
According to The Sun, the Canadians blagged themselves a spot on Cee Lo Green's private jet (the soul star is making the same inenviable award show commute) for the five-and-a-half-thousand-mile trek but had to turn down the 'Forget You' singer's kind offer of seven spare seats when their itineraries didn't quite match up.
"It was an option to go with Cee Lo but we're not doing it because he plays then leaves straight away," explained drummer Jeremy Gara. "We're arriving on Tuesday and get off the plane and go straight to the O2 Arena to rehearse."
Instead, Arcade Fire will be travelling tourist-style -- the paper reports -- and shelling out for seven economy class tickets across the Atlantic.
