Glassjaw have cancelled the remaining dates of their UK tour after frontman DARYL PALUMBO was hospitalised in GLASGOW last night (April 10) with another relapse of CROHN’S DISEASE.
The cancellation casts a shadow on the long term future of the emo rock band after Palumbo suffered his third relapse in the space of six months.
The New Yorkers had to cancel their first UK tour in October, and also cancelled the rescheduled UK dates in December due to Palumbo’s debilitating stomach condition, which is not life threatening.
The band were set to play at the Glasgow Garage tonight and also due to play three more dates during their UK tour, including two shows at the London Astoria next week.
The band have already played four UK and Ireland venues over the last week promoting their new album ‘Worship and Tribute’, including Dublin Music Centre, Newcastle Northumbria University , Nottingham Rock City and Bristol Academy.
A spokesperson for the band said: “It is with absolute regret that we have to announce that the remaining dates of Glassjaw tour have been cancelled due to vocalist Daryl Palumbo being hospitalised having suffered another serious relapse of Crohn’s disease.”
Palumbo is currently recovering in a Glasgow hospital, where doctors are monitoring his progress to see if he is well enough to fly back to New York.
The cancelled dates are yet to be rescheduled.
The dates affected include:
Glasgow Garage (April 11)
Camber Sands Holiday Centre (12)
Manchester Academy 1 (13)
Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall (14)
London Astoria (15/16)
