Tour falls in to Dark­ness

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE ’N’ LOUD -

Dark­ness and Joan Jett and the Black­hearts have can­celled their Aus­tralian tour – in­clud­ing a show at Bris­bane’s Riverstage on April 4 – due to ill­ness. ‘‘As some of you may be aware, (The Dark­ness drum­mer) Ed (Gra­ham) 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,’’ the band says in a state­ment. ‘‘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 and 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.’’ Re­funds are avail­able from point of pur­chase.
