SOUNDWAVE REVOLUTION FESTIVAL CANCELLED!
Australia’s inaugural Soundwave Revolution tour, featuring Van Halen, Alice Cooper and Bad Religion, was abruptly canceled this week.
The brainchild of promoter AJ Maddah, the five-city tour was intended to kick off next month. However, news of the cancellation spread wide early Tuesday when a member for the booked band Steel Panther announced the situation via his Twitter account.
Maddah’s team later issued a statement Tuesday confirming the cancellation, but not before explaining the background to Nova radio network. Maddah told listeners that the problem could be blamed on an unidentified second headliner, who had apparently pulled out and left the organizers with little alternative but to pull the plug.
In a statement, organizers said “many of the festival bands” will be coming to Australia as part of “multi band/mini festival line-ups” in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Details will be announced in the coming days. Fans who bought tickets will be refunded
