UPDATE 30/03/17 3pm: Tonight’s I Prevail show at The Triffid has been rescheduled for Monday, 3rd April.
UPDATE 30/03/17 6pm: Spiderbait’s show at The Tivoli has also been rescheduled for Saturday, 20th May.
Cyclone Debbie is currently drenching Queensland forcing the cancellation of most flights into Brisbane and the Gold Coast which has meant Urthboy has to cancel his show tonight while the fate of I Prevail‘s show is uncertain.
The MC was due to play with Alice Ivy at Miami Market tonight as part of his ‘Crushing Hard’ tour but he’s cancelled it due to the weather.
“Airports closed, flights cancelled. Flood warnings. Unfortunately Gold Coast show is cancelled tonight. Stay safe, drive carefully SE QLD,” he wrote on Twitter.
Urthboy will play Byron Bay tomorrow night and Brisbane the night after, weather permitting.
I Prevail and Spiderbait are due to play in Brisbane tonight. The Triffid, where I Prevail are due to play, have said that a decision will be made soon on whether the gig will go ahead.
“The decision will be based on whether The Triffid can provide a safe environment for patrons and the band can put on a great show considering the weather conditions,” the venue wrote on Facebook.
It’s the second show of I Prevail’s tour and they’re due to move straight onto Sydney tomorrow.
Spiderbait are due to play at The Tivoli in Brisbane tonight. At this stage, that show will still go ahead according to the venue.
The Bureau of Meteorology has advised that people in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast stay indoors and stay off the roads.
