The Cambridge Hotel has released the following statement after cancelling next weekend’s gig with Texan rapper, Riff Raff.
We have recently been made aware of allegations against Riff Raff on a previous Australian tour. He was set to perform next weekend here at The Cambridge. In light of these allegations we have decided to cancel Riff Raff’s show in Newcastle. The Cambridge takes these matters very seriously and want to ensure the venue is as safe and inclusive as can be. This kind of behaviour won’t be tolerated and we will always support the safety of women & all patrons in our venue.
We appreciate all of those voicing their concern and making us aware of the allegations.
For those who have purchased tickets, you will be refunded and Ticketbooth will be in touch shortly.
