Mastodon and Dinosaur Jr. cancel tour due to “critical situation”

The two bands were due to kick off their joint jaunt on Saturday (September 1)

Mastodon and Dinosaur Jr. have cancelled their upcoming joint tour due to a “critical situation of a member of the Mastodon family”.

The artists’ upcoming North American tour was due to kick off on Saturday (September 1) in Edmonton, Alberta.

The jaunt has now, however, been scrapped due to the aforementioned “critical situation”. A since-deleted post on Mastodon’s Facebook page confirmed the cancellation, with the band “extending their sincerest thanks to their loyal fans as well as the fans of Dinosaur Jr. for their support and understanding at this time.” [via Consequence of Sound]

They added that “as of now, no plans for rescheduling have been set.”
