“Reluctantly, we have had to cancel Piers Lane In Concert.
Piers Lane is overseas and would now fall into the 14 days isolation period, as announced yesterday by the Federal Government, making it impossible to perform.
We hope to hold this concert at some time later in the year.
All ticket holders will be refunded”
