Arcade Fire cancels tour

Added by Andreas on 25th March 2007

The Arcade Fire have cancelled the rest of their European tour, due to singer Win Butler suffering from a sinus infection. Arcadefire.net had the following to say:

The Arcade Fire have cancelled 9 dates on their current European Tour. Win Butler has been fighting a sinus infection since the beginning of this year and has simply been unable to get back to full health. With the constant demands on his voice from touring it has reached the stage today where he simply cannot sing.

The shows are the final nine of the sold out European tour. The cancelled shows are
Mar 24 Oslo, Sentrum Scene
Mar 25 Copenhagen, KB Halle
Mar 27 Berlin, Postbanhof
Mar 28 Munich, Elser Halle
Mar 31 Lyon, Transbordeur
Apr 1 Cologne, Palladium
Apr 2 Utrecht, Vredenburg
Apr 4 Brussels, Halles de Schaerbeek
Apr 5 Lille, L'Aeronef
Ticket holders should get in touch with the promoter directly regarding refunds. Due to future touring plans, it is unlikely that these shows will be rescheduled until later this year.

In short; CACK! These things do happen, of course. A personal message from the Arcade Fire can be read on arcadefire.com.
