NOT Sham 69, but Cockney Rejects

Bad news from the Sham 69 (Pursey/Parsons) camp…

“In March my father was diagnosed with asbestosis lung cancer. Since then the situation for my family has got worse and my fathers prognosis is not good as it has just become apparent that he has the most aggressive form. We have just been told that he now only has weeks to live and indeed his condition is already deteriorating. My family has only recently lost my mother so this makes it very difficult for me not to be here for my father and family. You will have to forgive me but I have to tell you now so you can at least have time to inform all fans. I am so sorry for this situation.” – Jimmy Pursey

We are so sorry to hear that too, and wish only the best to Jimmy Pursey and his family in this tough time.

The news means the cancellation of all US dates; the NYC show has been scrapped altogether (refunds available via the point of purchase), but Sham 69 was replaced by oi greats Cockney Rejects at Chaos in Tejas and Punk Rock Bowling. Tickets are still available for both Punk Rock Bowling and Chaos in Tejas in various increments (festival passes, shows by day, etc).

Check out the latest Chaos in Tejas flyer, along with some Cockney Rejects videos below.
