The Amity Affliction have taken to social media to share their frustration with Jetstar, as In Hearts Wake and Confession had to miss their show at The Union Jack in Cairns today due to a cancelled flight.
The Amity Affliction are currently touring the country with In Hearts Wake, Confession and New Zealand’s Antagonist A.D. supporting. The tour wraps up next week in Bunbury on the 31st.
You can read the bands full statement regarding the airline and the show below.
“We are very sorry to let everyone know, due to Jetstar Australia cancelling the only direct flight into Cairns today; In Hearts Wake and Confession will not be able to perform at our show at The Jack tonight. We have organised some cool local supports to fill in and will let you know who they are as soon as we can.
For a long time Jetstar’s inability to reschedule the flight today had us thinking we would have to cancel the show also. We have left no stone unturned in trying to get to Cairns as we have been looking forward to playing this show for a long time. We were nearly out of options before the legends at Independent Aviation were able to work with us and will now get us there in time to play the show.
To say we are disappointed that In Hearts Wake and Confession won’t be playing tonight is an understatement, we did everything in our power to get them there also but ultimately Jetstar wouldn’t reschedule the flight.
We look forward to seeing you all there tonight and will let our frustration out during the show, we can’t wait, it’s going to be wild.
Once again a massive thanks to Independent Aviation for making it possible for us to get there and we have nothing to say to Jetstar except – thanks for nothing!”
