Promoters behind Eyehategod’s Australian tour have issued a statement announcing the cancellation of shows.
Eyehategod’s tour was officially set to begin this evening in Perth, however, various issues, mainly relating to flights, forced the tour to be abandoned.
Heathen Skulls writes:
It’s with much regret that EYEHATEGOD’s January Australian tour is to be cancelled.
With various complications relating to their flights, and not enough time left at check in to rectify the situation, the band wasn’t able to board their flight to Australia. Every effort was made to book the band new flights and get them out to Australia the following day, but at this late stage, with so little flights available, we have exhausted all possibility of salvaging the tour and getting the band back out to Australia. And we tried everything. Because of this, the band has now scheduled additional US dates to replace the Australian tour.
Apologies to the band and all those inconvenienced, most notably their fans, Heathen Skulls would have liked nothing more than to have continued the tour, but unfortunately, at this late stage, this was not to be the case
All refunds will be available via your point of purchase. For all the Hi Fi show, that will be Oztix, for the Bendigo show, that will be Try bookings.
However, a Facebook post from Eyehategod reveals the band seemed far from impressed with the issues.
“We are not coming to Australia, and you can thank Heathen Skulls booking, Robert McManus. We apologize to all of our fans; its not our fault!”
