The xx cancel dates on their tour due to exhaustion

Shows in Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium and Germany have been cancelled

The xx have cancelled four shows in Europe because of exhaustion.

The band who were forced to play Wednesday’s gig at London‘s Village Underground (October 28) without keyboardist-guitarist Baria Quereshi because of “exhaustion”, have gone on to cancel their next four shows to recuperate.

The first to be cancelled was last night’s sold-out show at EKKO in Utrecht, Netherlands (October 29), with their gigs in Luxembourg, Belgium and their first night in Germany also axed.


The band have announced they will be back on the road on November 3 for the show at Frankfurt‘s Nachtleben venue.
