Sham 69 Forced To Pull Out Of Punk Rock Music & Bowling Festival 2012

We regret to announce that Sham 69 will not be able to make their upcoming trip to the United States as singer Jimmy Pursey has been hit with some sad news about his father. He wanted us to release this statement and sends his deepest regrets to his fans and everyone involved who had helped to make this upcoming tour possible

"In March my father was diagnosed with asbestosis lung cancer. Since then, the situation for my family has got worse and my fathers prognosis is not good as it has just  become apparent that he has the most aggressive form. We have just been told that he now only has weeks to live and indeed his condition is already deteriorating. My family has only recently lost my mother so this makes it very difficult for me not to be here for my father and family. You will have to forgive me but I have to tell you now so you can at least have time to inform all fans. 
I am so sorry for this situation." – jimmy

On behalf of all of us here at Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival and WithGuitars  we send our heartfelt wishes to Jimmy and his family. We apologize to everyone looking forward to seeing Sham 69 at the festival with Rancid on May 27 as we were all really excited to see them too. But we all know that family is of the utmost importance and completely understand why he needs to be with his father.

We do however have some good news! We have remedied the situation and are very stoked to have one of our all time favorite bands fill the slot.

Let us present to you, THE COCKNEY REJECTS!
