Aerosmith has cancelled their one and only stand alone concert in Sydney and will now perform on the Stone Music Festival instead.
In a statement to fans today, Ticketek announced, “We are writing to you today to advise you of a major announcement pertaining to the tickets that you purchased for the Aerosmith concert scheduled for Sunday 28 April, 2013”.
