The Darkness/Joan Jett/The Blackhearts - concert cancelled

The Darkness + Joan Jett and The Blackhearts -- concert cancelled


New Zealand concert Cancelled

Unfortunately due to ill health of one of The Darkness band members, the up coming new Zealand concert featuring The Darkness and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts has now been cancelled. Please find the below statement from The Darkness management regarding the cancellation:

“It is with great regret that we are having to cancel The Darkness' planned April dates in Australia / New Zealand. As some of you maybe aware, Ed has had some prior history with hip problems, which resulted in extensive surgery a few years ago, and caused him to miss some US dates in 2012. Unfortunately, over the course of the past few weeks' touring, Ed has been feeling that all is not right in that department, and has been advised to undergo some rest & tests before potentially taking a backwards step and making matters worse.

He will continue with the last few European shows and will then be forced to take some time out immediately to ensure him back to 100% fitness. This very sadly results in the immediate cancellation of the Antipodean tour. We will of course look to reschedule dates into our scheduling and itinerary as soon as possible but have nothing solid to be able to make work currently hence this being a cancellation rather than a postponement. All ticket holders can get refunds from the point of purchase.

The Darkness also feel that to visit countries which do not get enough shows by them as it is, and not have the full, proper and original band line-up, is simply not the right thing to do. To that end there won't be any possibility for stand in's or alternative Ed's for these shows and we won't be touring with any ersatz model! We hope to have details of re-scheduled shows very soon. The Darkness sends its most heartfelt apologies to everyone involved and look forward to seeing you all as soon as possible.”

As a result Joan Jett & The Blackhearts will not be heading to New Zealand at this time.
