Big Day Out organisers have announced that they were a little bit more ambitious than they should have been, by confirming that the second Sydney show will be cancelled.
The plan was initially to have BDO 2014 run over two days in Sydney, but the organisers have decided that one action packed day will be enough for fans. That day will be Sunday, 26th of January.
Promoter Ken West said in a statement that the organisers were “perhaps a bit ambitious expanding to two dates in Sydney for this year’s Big Day Out,” but made it clear that they still “look forward to celebrating Australia Day with you… it’s going to be an amazing day and evening of music.”
However, fans should not worry. Those holding a ticket for the cancelled show on the 27th will be allowed to use that ticket for the Australian Day gig, or if you can’t make it, refunds will be delivered.
Tickets are still on sale for the Sunday, the 26th of January, but West stresses that “while we are looking into a possible expanded capacity for the 26 January, given the merge of the two shows, tickets to January 26 are anticipated to sell out much earlier so do not delay if you have not already purchased.”
In simple terms: get your tickets fast or they will sell out!
On more positive news for BDO: a second lineup announcement will be announced very soon.
