Liverpool in Champions League final catches Echo and the Bunnymen by surprise

Liverpool reaching the Champions League final has taken nearly everyone by surprise -- none more so than rock band Echo and the Bunnymen.

Indeed, the Liverpool-supporting band were meant to be playing a gig in Birmingham on May 26, the night of the final, but have pushed it back three days after realising the clash.

In a statement they said: "Both our fans and Liverpool FC are very close to our hearts and after much reflection we decided we couldn't play a show during the Champions League Final.

"We asked UEFA to change the date of the match but they denied our request.

"We would always want to give 100 percent when we play but in this instance our heads wouldn't have been in the right place. We sincerely hope you understand."

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
