Shark has a show booked at Perth’s RAC Arena on Saturday, 26th February. Evie Irie and Teenage Joans are booked as the night’s support acts. However, under the WA government’s current border policies, the three East Coast acts wouldn’t be able to enter the state.
While more than 90% of Western Australia’s 12+ population is double-vaccinated, and roughly 34% have received a booster shot, McGowan scrapped plans to reopen WA’s border on Saturday 5th February. Speaking at a press conference earlier this week, the Labor politician remained obstinate.
“All I am trying to do is make sure that we are prepared and our vaccination rates are right, particularly for those who are older or immunocompromised,” he said.
Clearly unimpressed, Shark decided to make a direct entreaty to McGowan on Twitter. Read it below.
Dear Mark McGowan.
I really really want to come and see Perth again, I miss the people and I really want to play my show on Feb 26. I’ll do anything before the show I’ll wash your car, mow your lawn, cook you dinner, clean out your gutters, just please let us back in. Amy
Shark is set to play at Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Thursday, 24th February and Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Friday, 4th March.
