THE CHURCH — Starfish 30th anniv. UK SHOWS

The legendary Australian band THE CHURCH formed in Sydney in 1980. Their debut album, “Of Skins and Heart” (1981) delivered their first radio hit: “The Unguarded Moment” and they were signed to major labels in Australia, Europe and the United States.

But it’s their 1988 album Starfish producing the Top 40 hit “Under the Milky Way” [shared below] that brought the band to international prominence.

It is with great regret that Australian paisley underground pioneers The Church announce the cancellation of their scheduled ‘Starfish’ 30th Anniversary shows in the UK this June due to unforeseeable circumstances in the form of a major injury to their drummer Tim Powles.

The band were due to celebrate 30 years of their most successful album, the undisputed classic ‘Starfish’ featuring their iconic track ‘Under The Milky Way’ at the following shows:

Sat 8th/Sun 9th June – ‘Of Seance and Starfish’ – The Church Weekend, Bush Hall, London

Mon 10th June – Manchester Club Academy

Tues 11th June – La Belle Angele, Edinburgh

BUT THE CHURCH HAVE HAD TO CANCEL THEIR UK 30TH ANNIVERSARY STARFISH SHOWS DUE TO DRUMMER INJURY

In a statement released on the band’s social media on 25th May 2019, they said:

“In the last minute of the last song, on the last night of the USA tour last week, our drummer Tim Powles suffered a nasty fall off the front of the stage and fractured his foot. Up until today we had wanted to proceed with the shows with our “miraculous one footed drummer”, but new tests reveal Tim has developed a blood clot in his leg, while awaiting surgery. The high risk of DVT in this condition means that flying is entirely out of the question. After much deliberation today, we sadly have no choice other than to cancel the upcoming June shows in Germany and the UK – Including the 2nd Annual CHURCH WEEKEND event.

Refunds will be available from your point of purchase. Please contact your ticket vendor directly.
