Tony MacAlpine has had to postpone his upcoming Australian tour due to the shock discovery of probably cancer in his stomach that requires immediate surgery. Please see the below statement from Tony.
To my friends in Asia and Australia, it is with great disappointment and regret that I must announce the postponement of my tours in Asia and Australia.
Last week I was taken to the hospital with severe stomach pains. Following blood work, multiple MRI scans and various procedures, medical doctors discovered a large mass in my intestine, and it seems likely that we are dealing with cancer. My doctors have advised me that this will need to be dealt with immediately, and I am scheduled for surgery this week. Recovery from this surgery will take a month – right when I was scheduled to tour the Australasian region.
Providing all goes well, it is our understanding I should be well enough to perform on the coming European tour.
For Australia and Asia, we are working on rescheduling the shows. We will advise you as soon as possible when the new dates are booked.
In Australia, refunds may be obtained via thumpmusic.com.au
In Asia, refunds can be obtained through the ticket purchase outlet.
I want to thank Jellybeard Music & Management (our booking agent in Asia) and Thump Music (our booking agent in Australia) for being so supportive in light of this news. We apologize for any inconvenience these tour postponements have caused, but I’m determined to make these dates up, and rock your city soon!
Wishing you all the best,
