Soundwave Becomes Counter Revolution
Organisers of the canceled Soundwave Revolution in Australia are holding a smaller, three-city event called Counter Revolution.
Original headliners Van Halen, Hole and Machine Head are not coming. But the new event includes Panic! At The Disco, All Time Low, Yellowcard, Story of the Year, Face To Face and others.
Bad Religion, who on online posts made clear their annoyance that Soundwave Revolution was canceled without their knowledge, say they plan to tour “sooner than later” but with another promoter.

Eminem Rumors Heat Up
Rumours of an Eminem visit during the Australian summer heated up in recent weeks.
The Triple M radio network suggested the rapper would either perform on a headlining tour in December (most likely for Dainty Consolidated Entertainment) or as headliner of the six-city Big Day Out tour a month later.
Over the Aug. 27 weekend, the Ticketek agency flashed an enigmatic “My Name Is?” page. It featured the rapper’s recognizable logo, and was linked to a Waitlist where customers could sign up for presales.
The teaser attracted 300 “likes” before it disappeared.
