Turbonegro cancel North American tour

Plus the Norwegians won't be playing Coachella Festival

Turbonegro cancel North American tour
Turbonegro have pulled their forthcoming tour of North America due to guitarist Euroboy's ongoing health problems.

The Scandinavian rockers, who have already cancelled a number of European dates scheduled for early April, have axed five shows, including a slot at the Coachella Festival.

In a statement, the band explained that Euroboy wouldn't be well enough for long haul flying.

"A huge apology to the US fans and to the promoters," they said. "I’m sure that all will understand that this decision wasn’t taken lightly, but it is the right decision for Euroboy.

"He is in good shape, all considered, but his treatment makes it impossible for him to be away for long periods of time and certainly not to be taking long haul flights."

The band expect to be able to resume touring from May 2.

The cancelled dates are:

Vancover Commodore Ballroom (April 22)
Portland Hawthorne Theatre (23)
San Francisco Great American Music Hall (24)
Santa Cruz Catalyst (25)
Coachella Festival (26)


Turbonegro hope to return in time for the following dates:

WCH Festival, Drammen, Norway (May 2)
Landstreffen Festival, Algard, Norway (3)
