Twin ShadowTwin Shadow

Twin Shadow have postponed their fall North American tour, including their previously announced show set to happen at Metro on September 23. New dates will be announced shortly, and refunds will be available.

Here's a message from the band:

North American Eclipse Tour Update

To all of our awesome fans, I am very sorry to announce that we will be postponing this Fall's North American ECLIPSE TOUR.

While the band is more then excited to get out on the road and see you, there have been more then a few moving parts, leading us to re-evaluate the time that we launch our North American ECLIPSE TOUR.

As our ambitions with the live show and the music grow, we want to make sure we get it right. There is a lot of really great things going on behind the scenes of Twin Shadow that I want to tell you badly about, but we need to take some time to make sure everything settles perfectly.

The tickets you purchased will still be honored for the postponement dates that we will announce next month. If you'd prefer a refund just return to your point of purchase with your tickets and they'll sort you out.

While we are postponing our North American tour, we are keeping a select number of shows listed below, our goal is to use these shows to implement new elements that will help push things forward [Twin Shadow].

All remaining TS dates are listed below...

Milosh's August tour, which was scheduled to hit Chicago at the Old Town School of Folk Music on August 13, is cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase. No reason given that we can find.


DJ KRUSH posted the following message to Facebook last night

Dear All,
It is with great regret that we must announce that DJ KRUSH's Chicago (11.Jul) and NY (12.Jul) show must be canceled. The reason is due to Administrative Processing delays at the US Embassy, and KRUSH will not have his visa in time to travel.
KRUSH would like to apologize deeply to all of his fans, but unfortunately this is beyond his control. We will be working on rescheduling this date as soon as possible.
KRUSH suffering from shock for this situation.
We will announce his comment later.
DJ KRUSH management
The Chicago show was scheduled to take place at the Mid. He also cancelled NYC. His North American tour is now scheduled to begin in Portland on 7/15.

Earl Sweatshirt

Earl Sweatshirt has cancelled the remainder of his tour. The young rapper cited exhaustion as his reasoning for the cancellation on his Twitter account this morning, saying:

I sincerely apologize to any of y'all who planned to see me at these next couple festival dates. Due to lack of self maintenance I had to press eject on the tour. I am physically and mentally at the end of my rope. I weigh a fraction of what I'm supposed to and without synergy between the body and mind there is nothing. No point in performing if it's not the best show I can give every time. Now that I am home I can get healthy and get this album out to y'all while it's still fresh.
UPDATE: Though it was initially reported that the affected dates included his appearance at Chicago's Pitchfork Festival, Pitchfork now confirms he will still be playing. Metro also confirmed on their twitter that he's also still playing there on 7/19 with Domo Genesis and Mick Jenkins.

Pitchfork Festival (July 18-20 in Union Park) has had cancellations from The Julie Ruin (due to illness), DJ Rashad (due to his tragic passing in late April), and Death Grips (due to them being Death Grips).

Death Grips

Death Grips broke up today and cancelled shows, including Fun Fun Fun Fest (who responded) and Pitchfork Fest who have yet to officially respond or announce a replacement. Who should they get?

Death Grips were also set to open the Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden tour which hits Tinley Park, IL's First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre on July 24. Trent Reznor is not sure why he bothered giving them a chance.

You're not letting us in?!? (more by Fred Pessaro)
Black Cobra

As mentioned earlier, tonight's Black Cobra show at Reggies was cancelled. Here's why:

San Francisco's strenuous metal/doom duo, BLACK COBRA, has unfortunately been denied access into the United States' northern neighboring country.

While amidst their North American tour -- which was nearly entirely comprised of Canadian dates, with BLACK COBRA co-headlining alongside Anciients, with opening support from Black Wizard -- the band was denied entry into the country for virtually no reason. Having invested thousands of dollars into merch for the tour, they decided to tough it out and try again at a different access point, where again they were denied, with no explanation, and after thorough inspections of their vehicle and gear. This forced the band to return to California instead of performing in more than twenty cities across Canada.

BLACK COBRA today issued the following collective statement to their fans on the debacle: "As many of you already know, we were denied entry at the border of Canada. Because of the financial strain this has put on us, we were forced to cancel the remaining tour dates in the US as well. In the meantime, we will continue working on our forthcoming record and are looking into booking another tour in the US. We apologize to our fans and thank you for your continued support."

New US BLACK COBRA tour actions will be confirmed immediately and announced in the coming days; no Canadian dates will be scheduled. Stay tuned for further transmissions.
" nearly entirely comprised of Canadian dates", but Chicago was in there too. Bummer! Stay tuned for updates.


Though tickets are still on sale as of this posting, many sources are reporting that Kanye West's two shows with Kendrick Lamar at United Center are postponed, much like the Vancouver, Detroit & Minneapolis shows before them. To quote Pitchfork, "his shows in Chicago on November 7 and November 9 have been postponed." But strangely they say "His November 8 show in Columbus is still scheduled to take place." To quote Pat Mordy, "Just called United Center. It's true. No Kanye for me this weekend". Bummer.

Stay tuned for more details.


Hawkwind, whose collabortors include William Shatner, have sadly just announced:

As many of you will now be aware, Dave was taken ill a couple of weeks ago. Doctors have confirmed that his condition is stress related, aggravated by the trademark dispute in the United States which could result in years of litigation.

After enduring a series of tests, Dave has now been advised that it could be dangerous to his health to embark on a grueling 14,000 mile tour at this time.

After much discussion about possible ways forward, the members of the band have reluctantly decided that it is necessary to reschedule the dates to March 2014, rather than putting Dave's health at unnecessary risk. (New dates for each venue will be announced next week)

Whilst we understand that this will come as a big disappointment to those of you who have booked tickets, as it does to ourselves, we are equally sure that you will understand health concerns must take priority.

Hawkwind's tour was supposed to hit Chicago at the Logan Square Auditorium on October 16 with Perhaps Get well soon Dave and stay tuned for the new dates.

Meanwhile, Nik Turner's Space Ritual is heading out as planned.

Tricky @ Osheaga Festival 2013 (more by Toby Tenenbaum)

Due to ongoing visa issues, Tricky has been forced to cancel many of his fall U.S. tour dates. This includes his performance at Metro on October 9, which was originally scheduled to take place on June 17. Refunds will be available at the point of purchase and he hopes to return stateside for a complete 2014 tour. A handful of shows are still on, including one in NYC.

Danzig @ Bonnaroo 2012 (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)

D'Angelo at Brooklyn Bowl in March (more by PSquared Photography)

As discussed, D'Angelo was originally slated to visit Chicago for a two-night stand at the House of Blues on August 6 (tonight) & August 7. We unfortunately didn't notice that tonight's performance was canceled some time ago and now his Wednesday night show has also been canceled, along with a few other dates. The string of cancelations is due to a very recent "medical emergency," as reported by The Chicago Tribune. Refunds are available at the point of purchase.

The singer still intends on performing at San Francisco's Outside Lands this weekend. Feel better, D'Angelo!

Azealia Banks @ Governors Ball 2013 (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)

Azealia Banks has canceled hear appearances at this weekend's Lollapalooza 2013 as well as Montreal's Oshega Festival due to a throat infection. Banks' Saturday afternoon (8/3) Lollapalooza slot will not be filled by another act, but Wisconsin's PHOX have been added to the lineup (8/3 at noon - The Grove Stage).

You might recall the feud that Banks had with fellow female rapper Angel Haze, who has NOT canceled her appearance at Lollapalooza 2013 (8/4 at 2PM - Perry's Stage).

Check out our Friday and Saturday Lollapalooza 2013 previews, and stay tuned for Sunday.

OMD in at T5 in NYC - 7/17/13 (more by Greg Cristman)

We are sorry to inform you that Malcolm [Holmes] was taken ill during last nights show in Toronto. He's currently being treated for heat exhaustion in hospital but is recovering well. Sadly however we have to cancel the remaining shows of the year (including Rewind festival). Please accept our sincere apologies, we really appreciate your understanding at this very difficult time. We will give you more news on Malcolm as and when.
Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark drummer Malcolm Holmes was hospitalized for heat exhaustion after the band's recent show at Toronto's Danforth Music Hall. Due to this, OMD will be canceling all shows for the remainder of the year. This includes their tour with Diamond Rings, which was scheduled to roll into Chicago this Tuesday (7/23) for a performance at Metro.

We wish Malcolm a speedy recovery. According to their Facebook page, they've been to visit him in the hospital and he's hoping to fly back home early this week.

Motorhead in NJ in 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)

Regretfully, Motörhead announces it has had to cancel its remaining six summer festival appearances. The band hate to let their fans down by missing any shows, but they expect to be back in full force this Fall.

As you may have heard, earlier this Spring Lemmy had some medical maintenance for the long-term good, He was, at that time, advised to rest, but once feeling better, he of course resumed his life as usual. He has since been advised that he should immediately take some more time to rest

Lemmy says: I'd like to thank everyone who wish me well, it was a tough
decision for me as I don't like to disappoint the fans especially in times where
economy is bad and people spent their money to see us. But sometimes you
can't do anything else than following doctor's orders, but be sure we will be
back and kick everybody's ass.

There you have it! You can now stop worrying, redirect those cards, flowers and chocolates to a loved one (who will appreciate them far more), keep calm and carry on! Lemmy and Motörhead certainly are! Thanks and see you in the Fall for their new album in the form of a massive Aftershock...

The above message was posted to Motorhead's website, stating that they've had to cancel the remainder of their European tour after canceling a few other dates in June, due to Lemmy's hematoma.

Motorhead are scheduled to come to Chicago in September for this year's Riot Fest. They haven't made any announcements about dropping off of that festival yet, so hopefully Lemmy recovers by then. Fingers crossed!

Tickets for Riot Fest are still available. All affected Motorhead dates are listed below...

Michelle Shocked

As mentioned on BrooklynVegan, Billboard reports:

Michelle Shocked has gone silent after a homophobic rant at a San Francisco concert Sunday night that has left her without a U.S. tour. Ten out of eleven of her upcoming concert dates have been canceled by the venues themselves, Billboard has confirmed.

Clubs from Santa Cruz, CA to Evanston, IL have pulled Shocked from their schedules. Meander's Kitchen in Seattle nixed her April 26th show "due to her homophobic performance in San Francisco last night, during which she actually said 'God Hates Fags,'" the club wrote on Facebook. [Billboard]

Michelle is no longer completely silent on the matter, but almost all of her upcoming shows have been cancelled by the promoters including May 5th at SPACE. The Evanston club wrote on Facebook:
Many of you have reached out already following an ugly rant given by Michelle Shocked at her show in San Francisco last night. After speaking with the promoter of that show about the nature of the remarks, it's clear that this is no longer a show we're willing to put our name on. The May 5th performance at SPACE has been cancelled and refunds will be issued at point of purchase.
UPDATE: Michelle issued a statement.

The full list of cancelled dates is below...

Morrissey @ Radio City Music Hall, October 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)

Morrissey can't seem to play a Chicago show without postponing at least once. In all seriousness though, the guy has been battling illness over the past few months, including a bleeding ulcer, Barrett's Esophagus, and double pneumonia. As you may recall, Moz was slated to finally play The Chicago Theatre on March 23. That show, and all other North American tour dates, have now been canceled. Official fan site True to You report that these dates will NOT be rescheduled.

M. Ward @ The Vic (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
M Ward

First Morrissey, and now M. Ward, who says:

Due to illness M. Ward has been forced to cancel his upcoming appearance at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame series, Roll Over Beethoven: The Life and Music of Chuck Berry on October 27th at Playhouse Square's State Theater in Cleveland.

He has also canceled his upcoming October 25th show at Park West in Chicago. Refunds available at point of purchase. Last Sunday's postponed Los Angeles performance at the Orpheum Theatre is now rescheduled for February 7, 2013. Tickets for the October 21st date will be honored for February 7th.

Unable to fly last week due to doctor's orders, Ward is on his way to a full recovery and is deeply disappointed that he won't be able to complete these scheduled performances in Chicago and Cleveland.

In a statement released on Monday he said, "Out of millions of lead guitar players in the world, Chuck Berry stands alone as a true inventor of the artform. Everyone who plays guitar is indebted to his creations whether or not they realize it. "Roll Over Beethoven" is a perfect song - one that we recorded a few years ago, released this year and continue to play every chance we get. I am honored to have been given an opportunity to share a stage with Mr. Berry but, unfortunately, a stupid virus has kept me home in bed. I'll be there in spirit."
Feel better M!

Hum @ A.V. Fest 2011 (more by Matt Ziegler)

As mentioned, Sleigh Bells were one of the many acts slated to perform at the 2012 Pygmalion Music Festival in Champaign-Urbana, IL next weekend. Due to "a recently sustained injury," SB have been forced to cancel their appearance at the fest. Taking their place as the opening night headliners at the Canopy Club, are Champaign-based alternative rockers Hum. Hum's most recent reunion was right around this time last year, when the group performed at the A.V. Fest and Fun Fun Fun in Austin, TX. Tickets for Hum are on sale now, and festival passes are also still available.

Sleigh Bells are also scheduled to play Metro on September 28, which is the first date of their tour with Araabmuzik. There's no word on whether the injury will affect that tour.

UPDATE: The "recently sustained injury" is a fractured radial bone in guitarist Derek Miller's right arm, due to a fall at a Florida skatepark. The Metro show has been moved to November 4, and the entire tour has been rerouted.

An updated list of Sleigh Bells dates and a couple of Hum videos are below...
