In a statement the band say, 'We're very sorry to all the fans who were coming to see us play tonight, we encourage ticket holders to still come down and hangout with Chuck, Jeff, David and Seb at the Standard, from 6.30pm. Again we are deeply sorry."

A select audience of 300 people were expected to brave Sydney's rain this evening for the intimate performance, the first in this year's Live Lounge series.
