Stone Temple Pilots have canceled their Australian tour with Bush, featuring the legendary Gavin Rossdale, and LIVE.
Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo wrote, “It is with heavy hearts that we must postpone next month’s tour of Australia with @bush and @freaks4live due to the current health crisis caused by COVID-19. Our top priority is each and every individual’s safety and well being from fans, to our tour staff, each city’s event staff and so on. We hope you all stay safe and healthy as we navigate through this pandemic together. We will see you as soon as we can Australia. Much Love.”
Under The Southern Stars promoter Andrew McManus said, “Producing Under The Southern Stars music festivals each summer is a privilege and our fans and patrons have become part of the family. In light of the current global health crisis, we feel that it is imperative to protect the Under The Southern Stars family and proceed in a clear and calm manner.
“We have been closely monitoring the situation as it develops and following directives from the Chief Medical Officer of the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC). With the increase of travel bans and lock downs, in an effort to stop transmission of the virus, and with the safety of our patrons, artists, staff and crew in mind we have no other alternative than to postpone our April 2020 festival tour dates
“We’ve been in consultation with all UTSS2020 artists in regard to their touring schedules and we plan to announce revised festival dates for Under The Southern Stars next week. It is expected that our festival will be postponed until February/March 2021.”
Stone Temple Pilots canceled their Perdida acoustic tour earlier this year after singer Jeff Gutt injured his back.
