Those of you residing in Hobart and Sydney who’re looking forward to seeing Mos Def strut his stuff in Australia will have to wait a little while longer.
According to a statement posted on the Soundscape website “Due to unforeseen circumstances and commitments that have arisen at the eleventh hour, Mos Def is unable to make it to Australia in time for his first two Australian dates”.
The change affects his scheduled appearance at Soundscape in Hobart, which has been cancelled. Punters who were set on seeing his show at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney should have received notification for the Sunday 9th gig moving to Sunday the 23rd of January.
Mos Def has been replaced at Soundscape on Saturday 8th of January by his Black Star partner Talib Kweli. However punters, who had their hearts set on seeing Mos play, can seek refunds on their Soundscape tickets before 5pm on Friday 31st December via the festival’s website.
Soundscape has also arranged for Mos Def to play a show in Hobart at the conclusion of his tour “at great cost and many long days of hard work”. The date and venue of this gig is yet to be confirmed.
All other dates are unaffected.

Tuesday 11th January – HQ, Adelaide
Thursday 13th January – The Tivoli Theatre, Brisbane
Friday 14th January – The Palace Theatre, Melbourne
Saturday 15 January – Metro City, Perth
