21 August, 2012
Following yesterday’s announcement that Pennywise will no longer be in Australia this week for their scheduled tour, theMusic.com.au’s Daniel Cribb has unearthed concerns the injured Zoli Teglas had about the tour when speaking with him at the beginning of this month.
The band have promised they will return when Teglas is in better shape, an official statement from guitarist Fletcher Dragge was issued on the band’s website overnight.
“We love playing in front of our fans all over the world,” Dragge said. “The doctor’s news was a hard blow for everyone but Zoli’s health is our number one priority.
“We are working with the best doctors around to make sure Zoli gets back on his feet as soon as possible…our apologies go out to all our dedicated fans…we will be making up these shows as soon as possible…keep the beers cold!”
The band were set to kick off their tour on the Gold Coast on Thursday night.
