have cancelled their European tour if anybody's interested / has tickets.
they've only cancelled the UK dates :(
"We are sorry to announce that due to a scheduling conflict we've had to cancel the UK portion of the November tour. The dates in Belgium, Spain and Ireland are NOT affected and will go on as scheduled. We regret any inconvenience this causes and hope to schedule new UK dates soon. In the meantime, individual promoters/venues will have refund information."
Isn't "scheduling conflict" some kind of bullshit shorthand for "we can't be bothered"? What happened, they arranged a gig on the other side of the world by mistake?
Extra time will also be required for "soundcheck issues" if the ATP gig was any indication.
Maybe that's it - they've realised they need to factor in an extra day for tech before each date of the tour...
fucksticks. i was really looking forward to that.
first bright eyes and now wilco... hmmpf
I might burn an effigy of Jeff Tweedy on a bonfire in protest.
hope they don't reschedule for Brixton. And I live there!
i have to wonder about ticket sales. for as far as i know the brixton date still wasn't sold out (i assume the other uk dates also?), versus earlier in the year with 2 consecutive sold-out ones at shepherd's bush...
