UPDATE (1pm Melbourne time, August 9) Stix has deleted the tweets. Huh.
Steel Panther drummer Stix Zadinia has set the Twitters raging with a series of tweets claiming that the Soundwave Revolution festival has been cancelled. There’s no official word on this either way, but I would recommend regularly checking the Soundwave Festival Twitter and Soundwave Revolution Facebook pages and the Twitter account of AJ from Soundwave for the latest. Take it as a rumour for now and I’m sure the Soundwave folks will clarify things soon.
Here are Stix’s tweets in chronological order:
Soundwave revolution is cancelled. I am bummed.
Just got word from our management that the whole festival is cancelled. I hope I’m wrong but I was told it’s official. Anyone hear same?
Maybe we’ll still come out and rock anyway! I’m hoping it can get worked out. We wanna rock u guys in Ozn
If I’m wrong, I’ll only let two chicks suck my dick instead of the normal 5. That’s how serious I am.
Just wait. I ain’t wrong.
Ok everyone. I’m just reporting what I was told. U don’t have 2 believe me. Better yet, don’t believe me and wait for an “official” anncmnt
Ok. Let’s start over fuckers. Don’t panic. Let’s all pretend I didn’t hear from our manager that swr is officially cancelled. U good now?
Aside from Steel Panther, the Soundwave Revolution line-up includes Van Halen, Alice Cooper, Devin Townsend, Alter Bridge, Hole, Machine Head, Hellyeah, The Damned Things and about a bazillion more bands.
