It is with much sadness that l inform you today that l am not coming to Europe & UK with Rose Tattoo next week, as planned and previously advertised. This decision (made known to me only recently) was not of my making. l apologise to those who have (or may be) inconvenienced by this sudden change up.

l wish the band well on the tour. Cheers! Mark Evans. PS. Any bands out there in need of a slightly used bass player? It appears my diary may now be clear.”
