A family bereavement is the reason...
Fugazi have postponed what was to be their first tour of the UK and IRELAND since 1999.
The seminal US rockers were scheduled to play a number of dates in June, concluding with two nights in London at the Forum venue (June 21-22).
However, the dates will now not take place due to family bereavement.
A statement has been issued, that reads: “It is with deep regret that we must announce the cancellation of Fugazi s UK and Eire dates in June, due to the sudden death of an immediate family member.
“Fugazi apologise to their fans and hope they will be understanding of these exceptional circumstances. The band would like to assure everyone that rescheduling these dates will be a priority for them as soon as they are able to resume playing again. All efforts will be made to schedule the dates at the same venues/towns and therefore it is hoped that all current tickets will remain valid.”
The tour dates effected are at: Bristol Academy (June 9)
Brighton Corn Exchange (10)
Birmingham Que Club (11)
Nottingham Rock City (12)
Leeds Met Uni (13)
Glasgow Barrowlands (14)
Derry Nerve Centre (16)
Dublin Vicar Street (18)
Manchester University (20)
London The Forum (21-22)
