Given the lack of other Aus dates before this cancellation, I can only guess that they couldn't find a promoter prepared to take the chance and set up a full local tour....which would be a crying shame for the genre in Australia.

And your guess is wrong. ;)

It's not for me to comment on the reasons for the cancellation, though I hope they had a lotta fun at their 30th anniversary celebrations in NOLA over the weekend!

I feel really disappointed for the people who haven't seen them and have missed this opportunity.

This comment from Flea sums up what I think of Rebirth:

just saw THE REBIRTH BRASS BAND, unbelievable. hard as hell, free as a ray of light, there is not a band on earth that is better. stunning.
