Citing ‘a change in international commitments’ and stating that it will not be possible to reschedule the dates, Gibb will not only pull out of his headline shows but also his scheduled performance at Bluesfest.
This is a massive blow to the iconic festival, arriving mere weeks after another headline act, Neil Young, also pulled out of the program. Bluesfest has stated that all ticket holders for the Monday night will now be eligible for a full refund from now until seven days after the new artist announcement for Easter Monday has been made.
Scottish electronic artist Hudson Mohwake also cancelled his Australian tour earlier today, proving a tough 24 hours for international tours.
Ticket holders for the Monday night of Bluesfest can head here for a full refund.
