The Hoodoo Guru-curated Dig It Up has unfortunately announced that it will not be following through with the dates scheduled for Adelaide. It seems that the show was unable to compete with other events happening in the area, and decided to “pull the pin / count their losses / pull up stumps”.
As per a statement released on the event’s Facebook, Adelaide is currently pumping with live music events: “Day On the Green, Nick Cave, Neil Young, Dinosaur Jr, Bruce Springsteen, Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival“, not leaving too many ticket-buyers out there who have a free evening.
There is still hope that it will return one day, “when time allows”.
The below statement gives information on how those holding tickets to the Friday, 26th April show at HQ can get refunds:
“A long hot summer packed full of various festive musical activities – A Day On the Green, Nick Cave, Neil Young, Dinosaur Jr, Bruce Springsteen, Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival et al – has resulted in a less than desired outcome for the Adelaide leg of Dig it Up 2013, so it is with great regret promoters Feel Presents have decided to pull the pin / count their losses / pull up stumps for the scheduled show @ HQ on April 26th, and instead offer fans of the Hoodoo Gurus and Dig It Up! one of two options.
1. A full refund. Please contact the respective ticketing companies for details: VenueTix phone 8225 8888 // Oztix phone 1300 62 545
2. Exchange your existing Adelaide Dig it Up! ticket for the full Melbourne Dig it Up! experience. That’s right, your Adelaide ticket now grants you full entry to the Melbourne Dig It Up!
Dig it Up! Melbourne is held on the public holiday of April 25th at The Palace Theatre. Other acts include: Blue Oyster Cult, Buzzcocks, The Stems, The Moodists and of course the full proposed Adelaide line-up of Flamin’ Groovies, Peter Case Band and Hoodoo Gurus playing Mars Needs Guitars (plus other smash hits). Full Melbourne Dig it Up! details available here: http://digitup.net.au/
How’s that for value?
NB: This offer is only valid to those who are currently holding an Adelaide Dig it Up! ticket.
Alternatively Dig it Up! and Hoodoo Gurus will make their way back to Adelaide when time allows.
People, the choice is yours.”
