With just over 3 hours before the Hardware 20 party starts at Altona tonight, Hardware have announced that Pascal F.E.O.S. has cancelled all his Australian dates. Apparently he has refused to board his Australian bound plane, which was to travel via Asia, as result of the SARS epidemic. Thus, fans of Pascal F.E.O.S. will be bitterly dissapointed by his no-show at Hardware 20 tonight.
Hardware have stated that "A copy of a letter from management will be displayed at the venue entrance tonight and an official statement will be posted on our website on Tuesday www.hardwarecorp.com.au"
To compensate for the lack of a set by FEOS., several of the mainroom sets including those of Stanny Franssen and Anthony Rother will be extended.
Amended set times for the mainroom:
PLANET HARDWARE Soccer courts
10:00-11:00 PDT vs. Degenerator
11:00-12:00 Dee Dee & Slack
12:00-1:00 Wetmusik - Willie & Simon
1:00-2:30 Ben Cromack (extra 30 mins)
2:30-4:30 Stanny Franssen (extra 30 mins)
4:30-5:45 Anthony Rother LIVE (extra 15 mins)

In a final message from Hardware, they state "As an act of goodwill to Feos fans, Hardware is offering refunds for unused full priced tickets from the office (Rear 2/30 Chatham St, Prahran) on Tuesday April 23rd only...however, we urge you to come and support the other 35 DJ's appearing on this lineup."
