The Exploited Australian tour cancelled


The Exploited Australia – New Zealand tour cancelled / To be rescheduled.

Unfortunately The Exploited tour in Aust-NZ is cancelled due to a very serious family situation of the bass player. Rob has travelled today back to Ireland to stay with his family for the next few weeks and therefore The Exploited is not able to make tour. The band is feeling really sorry, not only for Robs situation, but also this tour cancellation and the disappointment for the fans.

“I’m really sorry to have to say this but I’m afraid we’ll have to cancel. Apart from feeling sorry for Rob, we’re all totally gutted as we were really looking forward to this, but it is out of our control. I don’t really know what else to say except for I’m sorry to have to be saying this in every aspect. We’d just like to apologise to the promoter and everyone involved in these gigs and especially all of the people who were coming to see us. There’s no one more disappointed than us!!!  So hopefully in the future we can get a chance to come back and play to the people of Australia and New Zealand. ” – Wattie / The Exploited
