It’s with sad news that Clockwork aka RL Grime has been admitted to hospital in Adelaide with an extremely high temperature and virus.
The producer’s Australian booking agent Stuart Balfour, offered this letter of information on his condition.
“It is with greatest regret that Clockwork will not be performing at Candy’s Apartment this evening.
After an extensive tour of Europe and then flying direct to Australia, it seems Clockwork has picked up a virus and is running a temperature of 40.5 degrees.
He has been admitted into hospital in Adelaide and we are awaiting his test results, but doctors have already advised him against flying and performing.
If we can, we will do our best to re-schedule while he is here in the country.
Everyone in the Clockwork/RL Grimes team is gutted as they have heard so many good things about the VAMP Music parties and its crowd.”
Vamp music are working hard to resolve the situation for what was to be Clockwork’s Sydney show and have offered a more immediate solution. Vamp owner Sasha Skalrud has quoted via social media:
“The night is still going ahead and we’re going to offer a free drink for every person that has a pre-paid ticket (e.g. If you’ve bought 5 tix you get 5 drink cards) and we’ve got another one of our resident DJ’s doing a Clockwork tribute set (All clockwork originals, remixes, edits, mashups and the stuff he’d usually play). It’ll still be a big night tonight so come down early, the price will be $10 on the door!”
Stoney Roads team sends their best wishes!
