Hours before the band were supposed to take to the stage in Sydney for the second stop of their Australian tour, Protest the Hero alerted fans on Facebook that guitarist Tim Millar had to leave on the next flight available due to a family emergency, resulting in the cancellation of the show at The Factory Theatre. They tried to make it work so fans could still get to see the band in action as a four piece but plans fell though:
“Our goal was to play tonight’s show despite this set back as a four piece – but after a flight from Melbourne and an early door at tonight’s show, we just weren’t able to get it together. We will be putting together a show for the next three days to function as a four piece (Newcastle, Brisbane and Perth are still on).”
Fans who are holding onto hope of seeing the guys in NSW’s capital are told to hang onto tickets as they’re doing their best to schedule a make up show:
“We are looking into every option to make this show up next week after our final date in Perth. Steps are being taken to secure a venue – we will play a double header if we have to. If you are not able to make it to that, or if we aren’t able to make it happen, refunds will be issued in full – so hang onto your ticket…”
We’ll keep you updated on the show’s rescheduling once it’s announced.
Our thoughts are with Tim, his family and the band during this time.
23rd April – Newcastle, The Small Ballroom
