Despite the unprecedented fall-out from COVID-19, all three bands were resolute in their decision to postpone rather than cancel the tour, determined not to disappoint fans and determined to support the Australian live music scene.
Promoter One World Entertainment has been working hard behind the scenes to secure the new 2021 tour routing and thanks patrons for their patience during this time.
The rescheduled tour – which sees +LIVE+, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots alternate their playing order across nine outdoor and two indoor shows – will commence in Perth on February 16, 2021 and end on the Sunshine Coast QLD on March 7, 2021.
Special guest support acts Rose Tattoo and Electric Mary have also committed to the new dates.
Tickets for the new dates are on sale on Friday, April 3 from 10.00am
+LIVE+ frontman Ed Kowalczyk said: “While the world is in an uncertain place right now, we can be certain that the UTSS festivals will go ahead in early 2021. We are super excited to get in front of our Australian fans so please, keep your tickets for the rescheduled events as they are 100% valid. We can’t wait to be playing for you very soon, so please come and celebrate with us.”
Gavin Rossdale from BUSH added: “I wanted to reach out to all our fans in Australia and say that UTSS is going to be happening in 2021. Our hearts go out to all the medical teams around the world and the first responder teams that have been taking care of everyone. We’re going to be back better and stronger than ever as an entire human race. Australia, I love you and can’t wait to be there. All tickets will be valid – so much love and take care.”

As has been reported, the Australian music industry has been completely crippled by COVID-19. Those working in lighting, sound, production, rigging, security, site management, catering, ushers, not to mention the musicians themselves, are all now unemployed and, will likely be, for many months. With so many concerts and events cancelled, the industry desperately needs support and any positive news about the future is welcomed.
+LIVE+, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots have delivered that today by rescheduling rather than cancelling their tour. We hope that fans will echo their commitment and support the live music scene by retaining their tickets for next year’s rescheduled dates, rather than seeking a refund.
All 2020 tour tickets are valid for the rescheduled festival dates and no exchange is necessary, so just hold on to your tickets and we’ll see you next year. The rescheduled dates are listed below.
Unfortunately, the concert scheduled for April 3 at Tuncurry NSW cannot be rescheduled, but Tuncurry tickets are valid for the nearby Newcastle or Gosford shows. No exchange is necessary, just present your Tuncurry ticket at either venue on the day. (Further information will be sent directly to all Tuncurry patrons.) The tour has one venue change for the Sunshine Coast, with the show there now being held at the iconic Sandstone Point Hotel on Bribie Island.

By today’s announcement, +LIVE+, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots have signalled their support for the Australian live music scene. So make a diary note of the rescheduled dates, and let’s all look forward to seeing this cracking tour. Roll on 2021 we say……!
