Cold Chisel Cancel A Day On The Green Show Due To Bushfires

Cold Chisel are about to embark on a string of shows around the country as a part of their Blood Moon tour, but they’ve had to cancel the Rutherglen, VIC leg, which was slated to happen today, due to bushfires and poor air quality.

The bushfires have been harsh on rural Victoria, already causing the Lorne leg of Falls Festival to be cancelled in the final days of 2019.

“We are extremely disappointed to cancel today’s event at All Saints Estate but the unsafe conditions give us no other option,” Roundhouse Entertainment Promoter Michael Newton said in a statement.

“Our first priority is the safety of patrons, staff and artists and with air quality on the site and in surrounding areas now at a hazardous level, we have no other option but to cancel today’s show.”

“We have been on-site for the past week preparing for the show, and sadly we have seen the air quality deteriorate to a level where we have been advised that it would not be safe to proceed. We are also concerned about traffic, given the fires in the area. This is a really unfortunate situation. We do not cancel shows lightly, and we are devastated that we have had to cancel what would have been our first show for 2020.”

At this stage, the remainder of the tour will still go ahead, with shows in the Yarra Valley and Geelong happening this weekend.

All those that had purchased tickets to the show in Rutherglen will be contacted and provided a full refund via Ticketmaster.
