Powderfinger's Final European Tour Faces Axe
POWDERFINGER's last ever European tour is facing cancellation as a result of the volcanic eruption in Iceland - the Australian rockers fear they won't be able to fly to the continent to begin the trek on Wednesday (21Apr10).
The band announced earlier this month (Apr10) they are set to part ways, revealing the Sunsets tour in their native country later this year (10) will be their last.
The group was due to fly to Ireland on Sunday (18Apr10) to start their shows in Dublin later this week (21Apr10) - but they have so far been unable to get on a plane as most flights to northern Europe have been grounded.
But Powderfinger's manager, Paul Piticco, is hoping the band will be able to fly to Europe soon in order to perform the scheduled dates.
He says, "We're waiting like everyone else to see when we can get on a flight. At this point we're still holding out hope that if it clears miraculously we will make the London shows and reschedule Dublin. We are re-evaluating the situation constantly and urge people to keep an eye on our website."
