Switchfoot have cancelled their remaining Soundwave shows and will fly home from Melbourne to the US tonight. Frontman Jon Foreman’s daughter is reportedly in hospital, forcing the band to cancel their appearances in Adelaide and Perth.
Soundwave boss Aj Maddah announced the news via Twitter:
@iamnotshouting: Major family emergency for Switchfoot. They’re heading back to The U.S on next flight out #SW12
He also slammed anyone who plans on trolling the band for their decision to leave:
@iamnotshouting: @skulzy87 anyone that slags them off is a knobhead. Singer’s very young daughter is in hospital 🙁
The Soundwave Festival heads to Adelaide tomorrow before things wind up in Perth on Monday.
