After a few friends hit me up about the rumored cancellation of The Bluetones upcoming tour dates, I checked out their website and found the sad news to be true. It is ok to cry... just go ahead and let it out.
The following is the statement from the band on their site:
It is with great regret that The Bluetones are forced to announce the post-ponement of their planned shows in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne.
The band were looking forward to playing these shows but due to circumstances over which we have had no control, are not in a position to fulfil these commitments.
Due to legal reasons it cannot be discussed here the exact nature of what has caused the cancellations, but rest assured the picture will be made clear for everybody as soon we have the full facts in front of us.
Again, I can only stress that this was not a decision that was taken by the band, so much as made for, and unbeknownst to, us.
I cannot properly express the heartbreak all of this is causing us, and apoligize sincerely for any dis-appointment felt by people who have already purchased tickets for these shows. We will try to re-schedule as soon as possible, although that is probably small consolation right now.
