Dirty Projectors involved in serious car accident
Band flip their van near Detroit, MI
Dirty Projectors have cancelled several shows on their current tour of North America after being involved in a car accident near Detroit, MI.
The van in which they were travelling flipped over on Wednesday (June 23), and the band members were taken to hospital. Although everyone was released without injury, the group chose to cancel the remaining shows this week to rest up after the incident.
According to a message from Domino Records on eyeweekly.com:
“Dirty Projectors' van flipped outside of Detroit, MI on their way up to Toronto. Although the crash was serious, we're happy to report that all members of the band have been safely discharged from the hospital. The band will be flying home to New York in the morning to regroup and rest. Unfortunately, the band will have to cancel Toronto and Montreal.”
The tour resumes on July 2 in Vancouver.
