Supergroup Big Noize, featuring vocalist Joe Lynn Turner (DEEP PURPLE, RAINBOW, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN), bassist Phil Soussan (OZZY OSBOURNE, VINCE NEIL), guitarist Carlos Cavazo (QUIET RIOT, RATT) and drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio) has been forced to cancel their South American tour this month.
On December 4, 2008 Big Noize and booking agent Sullivan Bigg released the following statement:
Although there were several promoters involved, all of them were in breach of contract by failing to make arrangements and provide the funding as agreed, despite repeated requests from band management and agent. Big Noize waited to cancel until “the last minute” in good faith that flight/hotel arrangements and funding would show up. As of today, neither flight/hotel arrangements or funding has been sent to band management nor their agent. The members of Big Noize were looking forward to playing to fans on this tour. The band, management and booking agent are all sad and disappointed that this has happened but they are looking forward to an opportunity in the future to reschedule a tour to with more reputable promoters.
