Memories Of Woodstock Festival changes line-up
Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash have pulled out of the Memories Of Woodstock Festival.
Jefferson Starship, Asia, Uriah Heep, Focus and the Carl Palmer Band have also been removed from the line-up on the official festival website.
Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash released the following statement on their homepage: “Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash will not be appearing at the Memories of Woodstock festival, we are aware that some fans may have bought tickets for the festival specifically to see MTWA. In these instances we recommend people contact the promoters via their website to request a refund on the basis of the bill no longer being as originally advertised."
“Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash, together with several other high profile acts, are not appearing at the festival due to a severe breach of contract on the part of the promoter. This is disappointing for all concerned, as the bands agreed to appear at the festival in good faith and were all looking forward to performing. However, the bands would naturally expect the promoter to honour all contracted professional commitments, including and especially, public health and security issues. This, sadly, has not been the case.”
According to the official website, Memories Of Woodstock 2009 is still going ahead at the West Midlands Showground from 7-9 August.
Jethro Tull and Quill are among the names still advertised as performing.
