According to Australia's long-running rock station Triple M, AEROSMITH was the second headliner the organizers of the Soundwave Revolution festival were chasing before the entire event was ultimately called off due to "poor ticket sales."
"The organizers were saying they were waiting for a No. 2 headliner, but the fact of the matter was ticket sales were lagging," Triple M's Nui Te Koha said.
According to Triple M, it has now also been confirmed that Soundwave Revolution's originally announced headliner, VAN HALEN, will not be touring Australia anytime soon.
"There is no tour," Nui said. "The word from the band overnight to me is that there are no plans to tour Australia. So no VAN HALEN."
