According to AJ Maddah, promoter of Soundwave Revolution, there is a spot being held on the main stage for Weezer. It all comes down to them wanting to do it.
All the Aussies need to show support, show that we want them here!
I can empathise with fans on this issue. However I think it's important to keep an open mind. It's all very well to respond to comments made by one promoter on Twitter, but we really don't have the full picture.I don't think it was very professional of AJ to make some of the remarks he did let alone to retweet abusive comments. That said, I think that Australian fans would really benefit from a comment from/ on behalf of Weezer with regards to a possible tour in the near future. Perhaps that would help to alleviate some of the frustration that fans are experiencing.
I am glad I am not the only one feeling this way :)
It is comforting to know there are others out there feeling the same frustrations!
Hope somehow the message gets to Rivers and company. It's a shame that a whole country of fans has to miss out on seeing one of their favorite bands. Regardless whether the promoter's rant may or may not be unprofessional, I can imagine his frustration. And if there honestly isn't a legitimate reason for not going there, then I'm all for this kind of public outcry. Good luck to you, hope one day Australia does indeed get at least one show in the non-too distant future.
thanks for all the updates guys!! ...the bizarre world of weezer...
where 2 million bucks isn't enough to entice them here
