昨晚觀塘工廈Hidden Agenda再遭入境處放蛇,期間多人被捕。英國樂隊Ttng與美國音樂人Myletss晚上發聯合聲明,稱他們被扣查半天後暫時獲准保釋,又指事件令他們了解到,音樂工作者在香港生存原來如此困難。

Ttng及Mylets今日在Facebook發聲明,感謝樂迷支持;議員及律師團隊協助;以及傳媒的關注。他們被扣查半天後暫時獲准保釋,將於周二及周三離港,並會按保釋條件在6月5日回港報到。

他們指今次經歷讓他們知道,音樂工作者在香港生存原來那麼困難,需要有很大的熱情才能堅持下去,又指香港是一個自由多元的國際城市,應該有更大的空間鼓勵音樂創作和表演。「儘管昨晚發生不愉快的事,我們不會氣餒,會繼續到世界各地表演。希望下次我們有機會再來香港表演時,見到更多樂迷而非執法者。」

聲明全文如下:

First of all, we would like to thank our fans for their love and support, Hong Kong Legislators and legal team for their assistance and the media for their concern. After being held in custody for a few hours, we have been released on bail. We will head back to the UK and the USA respectively on Tuesday 9th of May and Wednesday 10th of May, and will be returning to Hong Kong to report back to the Immigration Department on 5th of June.

After last night’s event, we have learnt that it is extremely difficult for musicians to thrive in Hong Kong. It requires an incredible amount of strength and passion to persevere. Hong Kong as we know as an international city with freedom and diversity, should give greater room for creative works and performance to flourish.

That said, we shall not be discouraged, instead we will continue to travel and share our music with the world. We sincerely hope that we will be welcomed by more fans and music lovers rather than law enforcers at our possible future performances in Hong Kong.

Thank you for your support! We are so grateful for how helpful and supportive everyone has been to us. We are thankful for the kindness and compassion everyone in Hong Kong has shown to us.

- TTNG, Mylets

多謝樂迷的支持,多謝議員及律師團隊的協助,及傳媒關注。我們被扣查半天後,暫時獲准保釋離開,星期二(9/5)及星期三(10/5)會離港,各自返回英國及美國,並將按保釋條件在六月五日回港報到。
這次特別的經歷,讓我們知道音樂工作者要在香港生存,原來那麼困難,需要有很大的熱情才能堅持下去。香港應該是一個自由多元的國際城市,有更大的空間鼓勵音樂創作和表演。
儘管昨晚發生不愉快的事,我們不會氣餒,會繼續到世界各地表演。希望下次我們有機會再來香港表演時,見到更多樂迷而非執法者。
多謝大家!香港人對我們的支持、同情與鼓勵,我們永誌難忘!

- TTNG, Mylets
