Singer sings sour tune

LOCAL music superstar Knox has pulled out of the 2014 Fiji International Jazz & Blues Festival and apologised to his fans on Facebook.

The dread-locked singer and guitarist cited differences between his management and organisers of the festival as the reason for his decision not to perform.

"My deepest apologies and I hope to make it up to you in the near future," he said in response to disappointment from local fans.

Knox performed at the FBC Park Jam at the foreshore behind the Olympic Swimming Pool in Suva.

The event drew a record crowd despite heavy downpours and a power outage midway through the show.

Fans were looking forward to hearing new materials from his soon-to-be-released album during the four-day festival.

Festival organiser Billy TK Jr said Knox's management made a last minute request that could not be facilitated.

"It is unfortunate that this has happened, we respect Knox as an amazing local talent but demands made by his management were unreasonable," TK Jr added.
