BIG DAY OUT organisors regretfully announce that incendiary German
outfit RAMMSTEIN have had to cancel their appearance at the 1999 event series due
to illness. RAMMSTEIN drummer
Christoph Schneider has seriously perforated his ear drum which has
resulted in the band cancelling all shows in their immediate touring itinerary,
including scheduled performances in Germany,
Japan and the BIG DAY OUT. Sadly, Christophs
injury means no flying, no music and no explosions for well into the year.
The BIG DAY OUT organisors, RAMMSTEIN and their management are
profoundly disappointed by this unexpected turn of events and hope that they will
make it down to Australia as early as
possible. Luckily a few fabulous
Australian bands have been able to jump to attention and take on the task.
