As per the band's website, Sonic Youth has been forced to reschedule some dates on its upcoming west coast tour due to guitarist Lee Ranaldo's wrist fracture, which supposedly occurred during a (possibly) gnarly game of tennis. The new dates are as follows:
01.04.10 Tucson, AZ @ Rialto Theater
01.05.10 Phoenix, AZ @ Marquee Theater
01.07.10 San Diego, CA @ House of Blues
01.08.10 Pomona, CA @ Fox Theater
01.09.10 Los Angeles, CA @ The Wiltern
Tickets for the original dates will be honored and refunds will be made available at the point of purchase for those unable to attend the rescheduled dates. Two of the band's appearances will NOT be rescheduled, namely the September 26th show in Santa Barbara and the October 4th set at Austin City Limits.
Sending our thoughts to Lee Ranaldo and his wrist..... NOW.
