Popular band postpone tour after singer is airlifted to hospital

The Waifs are postponing their tour after Donna Simpson was seriously injured in an e-scooter accident.

The 20th-anniversary tour – called Up All Night – has been journeying through Australia since May and was due to continue in Geelong on November 10.

The folk band has now postponed this show until March 8 after guitarist Donna suffered a horrific e-scooter accident, leaving her with four broken ribs, two collapsed lungs, and heavy bruising.

After she was air-lifted to the hospital, Donna is now “resting and recovering” and plans to be back in action in December.

For now, though, the vocalist is not well enough to travel, so for some upcoming shows, including one at Handpicked Festival in Adelaide this Saturday, crowds will be treated to a special four-piece set from her sister and lead vocalist Vikki Thorn, Josh Cunningham, Ben Franz, and Dave Ross Macdonald only.
