STATEMENT FROM THE PROMOTER REGARDING THE CANCELLATION OF THE UK SUBS TOUR OF AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND
Unfortunately I have to tell you all that the upcoming UK SUBS tour of Australia and New Zealand has been cancelled. We regret to advise that due to unforeseen circumstances we have no choice but to cancel the planned tour. We sincerely regret this situation and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope to be able to re-book the tour as soon as possible.
For people who bought a ticket by credit card the money will be refunded automatically to your card. If you paid cash at a ticket outlet you will need to contact the ticket company directly to make arrangements for a refund to your bank account. Oztix refund booking fees too, and for NZ I am personally paying the booking fees myself so everyone will receive a 100% refund. Please do not let this put you off buying tickets for future shows, it's just one of those unfortunate situations that happen sometimes and I am doing everything I can to make sure no one is out of pocket over this.
The good news is that no one has died or is unwell, but myself and the UK SUBS deeply regret this situation and are very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Tim Edwards and the UK Subs
