BIG DAY OUT Organizers Explain MUDVAYNE's Abbreviated Gold Coast Performance

The organizers of the Big Day Out festival tour of Australia and New Zealand, which kicked off January 20 in Auckland, have issued the following statement:

"The Big Day Out would like to sincerely apologise to fans for the hour long loss of power twenty minutes in to MUDVAYNE's set on the Orange stage this afternoon [Sunday, January 22]. This power loss was a result of the torrential rain and flooding on the Gold Coast over the past week.

"The Big Day would like to thank MUDVAYNE for their understanding during this unforeseeable situation and express their disappointment the band's set was cut short. MUDVAYNE is equally disappointed fans did not get the chance to enjoy their entire set during the Gold Coast show today. We would also like to the chance to applaud punters for their patience during this unfortunate delay."

MUDVAYNE will be supporting KORN on their "See You on the Other Side" North American tour beginning on February 24 in Bakersfield, California. Also appearing on the bill are 10 YEARS.
