SILVERCHAIR Pull Out Of GONE SOUTH FestivalMarch 12, 2002
Australia's SILVERCHAIR have withdrawn from the Gone South festival as a result of a medical condition suffered by the group's frontman, Daniel Johns.
Daniel and the band are extremely disappointed that they are not going to be able to play at Gone South, said the group's manager, John Watson, in a statement. SILVERCHAIR has done over 400 gigs in the last seven years and this is the first one that they have ever had to postpone. They would like to sincerely apologize to their fans for this inconvenience. Daniel promises to try and make it up to everybody when the band performs in Hobart in the last week of June.
SILVERCHAIR's concert postponement has been necessary because Daniel Johns is suffering from a viral infection in both his knees. The infection causes severe swelling in these joints and is extremely painful. The debilitating condition has worsened dramatically in recent days and has actually made it impossible for Daniel to walk or even stand unaided. The condition is neither permanent nor life-threatening but his doctors have demanded complete rest for at least two weeks to help him recover from this infection.
The Gone South festival is schedule to be held at the TCA Grounds, Queens Domain, on March 16th and will include appearances by INCUBUS, KILLING HEIDI, and 28 DAYS, among others.
