We wish we didn't have to break it to you.
Lateral Events has advised that Massimo Bottura at State Theatre, Sydney on 8 August 2019 won't be going ahead due to unforeseen circumstances.
We've got an official statement from Lateral Events below:
"Lateral Events deeply regrets that the two August shows with Massimo Bottura in Australia have been cancelled. The cancellation is due to a number of factors beyond our control. All ticket holders will be contacted by Ticketmaster who will make full refunds.
Cancelling shows is the last thing we like to do, and we sincerely apologise to all those looking forward to seeing Massimo on stage.
We hope to see Massimo back on our shores in the not too distant future.”
