Sick of it All Asian Tour 2015 Updates

Sick of it All

Hello all,

We know that many of you have been waiting for further updates regarding Sick of it All’s upcoming Asian Tour with King Ly Chee. It has taken months to get to this point and over the past few months since we announced the tour, a lot of the best laid plans have suddenly had to be altered. All the changes have been out of our hands completely…but we’ve rolled with the punches and are clearly determined to make this work. After all, this is the legends Sick of it All we’re talking about. How often do we in Asia get to see these guys?

As you can see with the final updated dates above – Indonesia is no longer in the schedule. We have been going back and forth with promoters in Indonesia to make the date work. We even had the almighty Sonic Fair open up as an option. But after months of trying to work something out, the final nail in the coffin has been that the week we’re coming to Indonesia also happens to be Eid Ul Adha and due to this, the government has confirmed that they will not be issuing any work visas during that timeframe. Without work visas this is not a risk that both Sick of it All or King Ly Chee are willing to take to get into Indonesia. Both bands have had problems with immigration before and we can tell you, it is not a fun nor amusing situation to be in. Actually, it’s downright scary to be stuck in a room with your passports confiscated.

So with a heavy heart…we ask for forgiveness from all of Sick of it All’s supporters and fans down in Indonesia, they will not be able to make it on this run. We hope that they will be back again soon and that the circumstances are much better the next time round. We thank Final Attack’s Indra and Sonic Fair for all their hard work in trying to make this happen.

Now that the bad news is out of the way…

Most of us Asians believe in a higher power…whether that be God, Jesus, Allah, Buddha, Vishnu, etc…and so we have faith in the idea that when a higher being closes one door, he/she/it opens another.

We are incredibly honored to announce that Sick of it All will now be traveling to the Philippines for the very first time in their 29 year history as a band! We could not be happier that Evil Genius in the Philippines has not only agreed to take on this show, but are ECSTATIC to be doing this (Those are the kind of promoters you want to be working with! The ones who are excited about putting hard work and energy into a show because they love the band!)…bringing NYHC to the shores of the Philippines for the very first time ever!

More information will be released soon regarding Sick of it All’s inaugural visit to the mighty Philippines! Mark down this date and make sure you’re there:

    red coalition band from the philippines during early 90’s covered step down , scratch the surface, force my hand and injustice system in every gig that they were to play in the underground scene, unfortunately all of its band member are presently working abroad and not be able to see SOIA to play in our home land but still very proud that even though they’ re not gonna be round on Sept 27., the spreading of HARDCORE reality of SOIA binds our friendship and do hope that the power of your lyrics continue to serve as an eye opener for our fellow country men blinded by the system. Power and respect!!!
