TITLE: Velvet Revolver Postpones Australian Tour to Jan-March '08


Velvet Revolver regrettably announces that their Australian Tour which was due to kick off in Brisbane next Tuesday, has been postponed until early next year. The band is disappointed that they have to wait even longer to get to Australia, as they were extremely excited to play for their Australian fans. New Australian dates, expected to be between January and March of next year, will be announced on Monday.

This postponement also applies to the exclusive event for Harley-Davidson Australia that was scheduled for next Friday in Sydney, which was to be used as a showcase for the new 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycles.

Brisbane's Courier Mail have also reported the postponement, citing "health issues" as an explanation for the rescheduled dates:

AMERICAN rockers Velvet Revolver have postponed next week's Australian tour citing "health issues" and offering fans a refund.

The band, formed by former Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland with Guns N’ Roses legends Slash and Duff McKagan, were to have started their Australian tour in Brisbane on December 4.

They were forced to pull their dates in Japan when immigration officials refused their visa requests due to the criminal backgrounds of some of their members, particularly Weiland, who has a long history of battling drug addiction.

Neither the band’s record label SonyBMG nor Australian promoter KMW Productions were able to explain the last-minute change of heart by the band - with a spokeswoman saying Velvet Revolver management would not go into details about the mysterious health issues and which band members were afflicted.

Slash conducted interviews with Australian media yesterday and was excited about the band returning to Australia to perform.

The promoter is expected to release details about the rescheduling of the tour and refund of tickets later today.
