The MxPx And Screeching Weasel Australian Tour Cancelled

MxPx have cancelled their Australian tour for May and blame the promoter.

The tour fell over after co-headliner act Screeching Weasel pulled out of the tour. MxPx singer Mike Herrera said in a Twitter video that they asked around and that Zebrahead agreed to take over the empty Screeching Weasel slot.

Herrera blamed the Aussie promoter The Drunk Promoter for not getting back and agreeing to the change but the touring company did react on social media to the claim.

“I can’t do a fancy, well acted video because I’m not as good looking. But here’s my statement on the whole mess:

“We’ve been discussing a Screeching Weasel tour for over a year, not an MxPx tour. SW just happened to be bringing them out as part of the package. We did email them, we just didn’t want to do a different tour at such short notice. Here’s what we told them:

“After discussing this with everyone involved we decided that given the headlining band has pulled out we thought it would be too messy to add in bands, change the tour, and try to make all this work at such short notice.

We think that venues, ticket price and marketing would all need to be reworked and a one month turn around is too risky for us. We appreciate the amount of effort MxPx and yourself have put in to try and make this work.”

Even though I did my best to stay positive and think of ways to make this work, there’s no way I was going to try and convince my partners to risk thousands of dollars when I wasn’t even sure how it would go myself. People are underestimating how much pull Screeching Weasel had.

Refunds are now available from your point of purchase.
