BREAKING: Garbage Cancel Soundwave Sydney Performance

Written by Mike Hohnen on February 24, 2013

Despite the best efforts of the band, their people and Soundwave organisers, Garbage have announced that they won’t be able to perform at Sydney’s Soundwave festival today.

As Per AJ’s latest tweet, Garbage “are unable to unpack & setup in time” after the truck carrying their gear was caught up in this morning’s horrible weather while en route to Sydney from Brisbane.

The missing truck struck fear in the hearts of all the fans expecting to see their favourite bands perform on Stage 2. It was a stressful few hours but the majority of sets were saved. Sharks were unable to perform first up but will now fill the slot previously held by Shirley Manson and co.

As a result of the delay, Paramore, whose gear was on the same truck, will be performing after The Offspring, and will be closing out the day. Blink-182 and The Offspring will now take the stage 10 minutes earlier than previously advertised.

Spread the word among your fellow Soundwavers.

UPDATE: 6:43pm

Garbage have taken to Twitter to express their regret at not being able to play, while Sharks are overjoyed at the triumphant end to an emotional rollercoaster of a day.

UPDATE: 7:47pm

Did Garbage refuse to rearrange their set times to play for fans? Full story over here!
