Almost as quickly as we got news that skacore pioneering Boston 8-piece The Mighty Mighty Bosstones would be skanking their way to Sydney for a one-off show, we’ve received news that they have now scratched the date due to cancellation of the Java Rockin’land Festival in Jakarta.
Further details on the situation can be found in this message that was posted on the band’s website:
MMB were shocked to learn today that the Java Rockin’land Festival in Jakarta, Indonesia has been cancelled. We were really excited about playing Indonesia for the first time and apologize to all those people who have been waiting patiently for us to come. We really hope to return at a later date.
Due to these circumstances in Indonesia which are beyond our control, we will regretfully have to cancel our show in Sydney as well. When we were asked to play the festival in Indonesia we thought it would be a great opportunity to check in on our friends in Australia on the way – despite the fact that playing only one show would not begin to cover our travel expenses. Unfortunately we don’t have time to book any additional shows in Australia with such short notice to make the trip work. We have no choice but to cancel. We offer a sincere apology to all our friends in Australia.
We promise to return and hope to be able to reschedule some shows in the near future.
Thanks for your understanding – MMB”
Hopefully we’ll see them return to Australia again soon for a proper national tour.
