This Weekend’s Shows Go Ahead Thanks To Bob

April 24th, 2017

The Angels - Mr Damage Presents 4x4 Across Australia - 2017Despite guitarist Rick Brewster still being unable to perform, this weekend’s 4×4 shows will still go ahead thanks to former Angel’s guitarist Bob Spencer filling in for Rick.

Lead guitarist Rick  Brewster was hospitalised last week with an infection and is expected to be discharged within the next couple of days, but he is under doctor’s orders to rest for the remainder of the week.

Bob Spencer, who was a permanent member of the band from 1986-1992, has stepped up to fill in for Rick on the last two shows of the tour at the Commercial Hotel in South Morang on Fri 28th Apr as well as the Village Green Hotel in Mulgrave on Sat 29th Apr.

John Brewster says “One of Rick’s biggest worries while he has been ill has been whether he let’s down fans by cancelling shows. We are grateful that Bob is available to help out for these last two shows of the tour and we are looking forward to rescheduling last week’s cancelled shows when Rick is recovered.

While it will be a bittersweet experience wrapping up the tour without Rick on stage, John Brewster says the most important thing is that he rests and recovers. “The doctors are really pleased with how Rick is progressing“, said Brewster. “It will be great when he comes out of hospital this week, but he will need another week or two of rest – even if he doesn’t want – before he can get back on his feet. Rick can’t wait to get back on stage with The Angels again and we’re looking forward to announcing more tour dates in the not too distant future. This experience will make playing alongside Rick again all the more special.”

Aussie rock band The Angels have been forced to reschedule this weekend’s shows on Fri 21st at Club Sapphire in Merimbula and on Sat 22nd at the Astor Hotel in Goulburn due to the unexpected hopsitalisation of lead guitarist Rick Brewster.

Rhythm guitarist John Brewster says Rick was unexpectedly admitted to hospital this week with an infection and is receiving IV antibiotics. “Rick is receiving the best treatment and is hopeful to be released from hospital in the next few days.” he says. “Obviously he is extremely upset about having to cancel this weekend’s shows, but the most important thing now is that he rests and gets the treatment he needs to recouperate. All the band are thinking of Rick and wishing him a speedy recovery.”

The New South Wales tour dates, the second last weekend in the run which commenced at the start of March, will be rescheduled in the coming weeks.

John says both shows are in the process of being rescheduled. “We have immediately started working on finding alternative dates for the Merimbula and Goulburn shows….” says John, “We were really looking forward to the 4×4 dates this weekend and don’t want those music fans who had bought tickets to miss out. We thank everyone for their understanding about the postponement and look forward to finalising new show dates as soon as possible.”

The remaining show dates for the final weekend of the tour – South Morang and Mulgrave on Fri 28th and Sat 29th April – are still slated to go ahead at this time. Further updates on these dates will be announced shortly.

John says the band are looking forward to Victorian shows at the end of April. “At this stage, Rick is anticipating that he will be out of hospital and on stage in Victoria next week, We have our fingers crossed and are all working towards next week assuming that the shows are going ahead. We look forward to seeing audiences in South Morang and Mulgrave with Rick fighting fit!”

More details on the rescheduled show dates for Merimbula and Goulburn will be announced shortly. Any changes to the South Morang and Mulgrave dates for next weekend will be announced in the coming days.
