The forthcoming Pennywise tour that was set to hit Australia as soon as this week has been postponed due to injury according to AJ Maddah of Soundwave Touring, the promoters handling the tour.
Oh Feck! Pennywise tour dates postponed. Dude's done his back. Can't get on plane. New date tba.— AJ (@iamnotshouting) August 20, 2012
Not much more is known at this stage, though reports of frontman Zoli Teglas struggling with back pain have come through over the past couple of weeks, pain that has forced the band to cancel shows in Europe. Teglas actually collapsed on stage at Germany’s With Full Force festival last month and after this incident he was forced to have immediate surgery, according to Alternative Press.
We'll report information on new dates as soon as they are announced. The band were to be supported by The Menzingers and Sharks on the tour, which was set to start on the Gold Coast this Thursday night.
