This weekend, UK impresario Jamie Roberts, known to dancefloors as R&S recruit Blawan, was set to kick off his Australian club tour, playing alongside the likes of Marcel Dettmann, Lunice and Huxley while down here. The announcement followed his last trip to these parts alongside Pariah in 2012. However, Roberts has had to call off those plans, with hopes of returning at a later date.
“I have some unfortunate news regarding my tour of Australia planned in the next weeks,” he wrote in a statement. “Due to on-going chronic health problems I have, certain issues came to light recently. Upon my doctors’ advice I am afraid that I’m unable to take the long haul flight over to Australia and will have cancel my visit. I am thoroughly disappointed by this news and once this is all sorted I look forward to coming over in Australia and NZ once again.”
Blawan was scheduled to play Brown Alley in Melbourne, Chinese Laundry in Sydney, Adelaide’s Sugar, Coniston Lane in Brisbane and Shape Bar in Perth over the next two weekends. You can head to the man’s Facebook to send him some good vibes and best wishes. We hope he heals up fast!
