The Doug Anthony All Stars gig at Lismore City Hall has been postponed owing to the effects of the floods on the building.

The Doug Anthony All Stars’ almost sold-out appearance at Lismore City Hall scheduled for this Thursday (April 6) has been postponed due to the flood.

Lismore City Hall suffered a high degree of damage after being submerged during the flood and the team is not able to return the building to an operational state by Thursday.

‘We would have loved to be in a position to provide our community with a much needed laugh but unfortunately we are not able to put the show on this week,’ said GM Patrick Healey

‘We are putting our all into getting back up and running as soon as we can. I’d like to thank the extraordinary efforts of the staff, the Lismore SES and the amazing volunteers from the community who have turned up to help, many of whom we didn’t know before now,’ he added.

Lismore City Hall is working with DAAS management to secure a new date for the show, which will be announced soon. Ticket holders have been contacted and will be informed directly of the new date.

Lismore City Hall and the NORPA office will remain closed this week.
