Just two days after postponing dates in Montreal, Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., Femi Kuti has cancelled his entire North American tour due to an unspecified illness.
The cancellation was made official in a press release issued this afternoon, which advised ticket holders to seek refunds from the box office or venue through which the ticket was purchased. The release also promised that a comprehensive U.S. and Canadian summer tour would be announced soon, causing us to wonder even more at what could be ailing the musician.
Kuti's most recent album, Day By Day, released in October, is his first full-length studio album in seven years. Details for future tour plans will be announced through his MySpace.
