THE WHO today confirmed that they are postponing all remaining dates on their "THE WHO HITS 50!" North American tour. They had initially postponed FOUR shows on doctors orders after Roger Daltrey contracted a mystery virus. Initially it was hoped that the rest of the tour might proceed, but after extensive tests the seriousness of his condition became apparent when doctors diagnosed Roger as having viral Meningitis and prescribed a period of rest. The band apologize to fans and realize that the postponement will cause an inconvenience for ticketholders. It wasn't a decision taken lightly-THE WHO always give their fans 100% and were never going to compromise the show, but ultimately the band had no alternative but to postpone the tour.Get well soon Roger! The affected dates include NYC-area shows on 10/25 at Prudential Center and 10/26 at MSG. The band promises, "Tickets for the original dates will be honored for the new shows, which will be announced shortly." All affected dates are listed below.
Roger was particularly disappointed as he had been especially looking forward to the Teen Cancer America benefit in Los Angeles, a charity that he and THE WHO have worked tirelessly for. Thankfully he is already getting better and said, "We are very sorry to disappoint our fans in this way. For the last four weeks, I have been in and out of the hospital and have been diagnosed with viral Meningitis. I am now on the mend and feeling a lot better but I am going to need a considerable time to recover. The doctors tell me I will make a complete recovery, but that I should not do any touring this year."
Pete Townshend added, "We are rescheduling all the shows for next Spring 2016. We apologize to all our fans who have supported us in the last 50 years. Once Roger is completely well we will come back stronger than ever and Roger and I will give you all a show to remember."

Toronto, Baltimore, Boston, Montreal, Philadelphia, DC, NYC and possibly other dates on the Earl Sweatshirt / Vince Staples tour that was set to hit NYC's Best Buy Theater on 4/18 are being postponed as we speak. Venues have been announcing new August dates. The new NYC date is August 22, though it's not clear at this second if the entire show lineup will be the same (Earl is the headliner, and so he is definitely still on all postponed shows).
In other news, Earl is Kendrick Lamar's favorite rapper right now.
In other other news, LA production duo Christian Rich, who previously worked with Vince and Earl on Earl's Doris album (as well as with N.E.R.D., Drake, J Cole and more), put out a new song today featuring Vince Staples called "High." Pharrell associate Bia is on it too. Listen below.
More info on the Earl/Vince tour as we get it. List of dates postponed so far, below...
Here's a familiar story: Spanish band Hinds are having some minor visa problems, which means they won't be in the country in time for what was to have been their US debut at Baby's All Right on Friday (3/13). They write:

The Horrors @ Austin Psych Fest 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)
Dear friends, family, supporters, deadly sworn enemies and othersThe reshuffling of The Horrors' tours means postponing much of their fall North American tour with Moon Duo. West Coast dates are still happening, but the rest of the country will have to wait until later. Except NYC, that is: The Horrors' show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 5 has been canceled but the Stage 48 show, originally scheduled for November 4, will now happen on October 21. Tickets are still available, all previously purchased tickets will be honored, and refunds are available at point of purchase.
Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to reshuffle our US and European tours at the end of this year. We can only apologise to anyone who already has tickets to the dates affected - we hate cancelling shows but this situation was unavoidable. We'll be back on the road next year and make sure we return to all the places we missed on this run.
Updated Horrors tour dates are listed below...
Sad to say, due to immigration issues, my American tour dates are postponed for now. For those of you with tickets, refunds will be available at point of purchase.

Omar Souleyman at BV-CMJ 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Bad news, Omar Souleyman fans: tonight's show at Glasslands (6/13) (part of Northside) has been postponed till August 6. due to travel issues (maybe this giant storm that is currently drenching NYC?).

Gramercy in 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
We recently mentioned that most of the shows at NYC venue Gramercy Theatre were cancelled due to the 'A Night With Janis Joplin' residency, which was moving to that venue from Broadway. Now it looks like all of those shows have been cancelled (or postponed indefinitely) too. via The Associated Press:
Fans of "A Night With Janis Joplin" will just have to hold on, hold on.Refunds for the shows will be available at point of purchase.
Producers said Wednesday they have had to postpone indefinitely the off-Broadway opening "due to production issues." The show made a splash on Broadway in October and was to open Thursday at the smaller Gramercy Theatre in Chelsea.
The Gramercy Theatre schedule is now looking very empty.

Broken Social Scene frontman Kevin Drew will not be making it to the United States as soon as planned. In his own words:
We have been forced to postpone this Thursday's show at the Bowery Ballroom due to visa complications.Updated tour dates are listed below...
Show rescheduled for Monday April 28th. Tickets and details here.
* All tickets from April 3 will be honored on April 28. Refunds are available at point of purchase. *
I'm not sure why this is happening...really, truly. Twelve years of doing visas and coming down to America with hopeful fists and I have never had a problem like this one. I've been told that red tape and bureaucracy are part of the situation, but it does not do any justice to the idea of having to cancel a whole week of radio sessions, TV appearances and a live show love fest. We submitted in time and we did everything that we needed to do.
The US government has not given me my work visa yet so I have to cancel everything. There are more questions of worth entering into the fold. The US government obviously has the right to delay visas for whatever reasons they want BUT it would be such a huge help if they were consistent with their requests, so that people like myself can be a part of the country's business and culture. I would like to warn other artists, agents and labels and make this known so that they can be more prepared and hopefully avoid a situation like this. It is a very complex and unpredictable process which in turn makes it very difficult to keep a career going in the US. It sucks and it's a huge hit in terms of trying to reach the people with my record... but it's also just how it is sometimes. So, all I can do is apologize to the ones who were coming out to the show, the ones who were having us on their shows and hopefully reschedule everything. This is out of our control... but they can't control our hearts. We own our hearts. I look forward to hopefully making them all pound whenever this whole thing gets cleared up. See you soon. xo - Kevin
Everything But the Girl's Ben Watt was to play his first-ever U.S. solo shows (with onetime Suede guitarist Bernard Butler backing him) this coming week -- including two in NYC -- in support of his new solo album, Hendra. Unfortunately...
I am beyond disappointed. In spite of punctually jumping through every hoop, and getting our work visas approved by the US Embassy in London, it seems both Bernard and I are now stuck in a bureaucratic bottleneck, and the US authorities will, for whatever reason, not be able to deliver our passports - containing the visas - back to us on time. We will not be able to come to the US next week. We are utterly powerless. I still can't believe we are being forced to postpone. For what it's worth, I gather we are not the only artists being forced into this invidious position. I will re-schedule at the earliest opportunity. Sorry to let everyone down. Ticket-holders should contact local venue.NYC shows were to have been Joe's Pub on April 1 and Rough Trade on April 2. Let's hope they get rescheduled soon. In the meantime, you can hear a new track from Hendra (out 4/29) -- the surprisingly rocking "Nathaniel" -- below.
Bad news Allman Brothers Band fans. The group have had to postpone the remainder of the Beacon Theatre run due to Gregg Allman recovering from bronchitis. Postponed dates include shows on Tuesday (3/25), Wednesday (3/26), Friday (3/28) and Saturday (3/29). New dates have not been announced yet. Says representatives of the band:
All ticketholders should retain their tickets, which will be honored for the soon-to-be-announced rescheduled engagements. Those ticket holders desiring refunds may obtain them from the original point of purchase.Feel better, Gregg!
As discussed, legendary composer Ennio Morricone was slated to hit North America later this month for a pair of select shows--one at LA's Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live on March 20 and one at the Barclays Center's Cushman and Wakefield Theatre on March 23. Those concerts have now been postponed until June--Brooklyn on June 13 and LA on June 15. Additional tickets for his Barclay's Center performance are on sale now. BAMcinématek's "The Music of Morricone" film series will run as planned from March 20-22.
Streams of a few of Morricone's classic scores lie after the jump...
Justin Timberlake is currently on a tour which comes to NYC this week and was supposed to hit NYC tonight (2/19) and Thursday (2/20) at Madison Square Garden. Unfortunately, due to health reasons, JT had to postpone tonight's show until Friday (2/21). All tickets purchased for tonight's show will be honored on Friday, and you can still pick up tickets for both shows. If you can't make it on Friday, refunds are available at point of purchase.
The five or so inches of snow Hercules dumped on NYC wouldn't normally be enough to cause too much havoc, but couple that with falling temperatures that are due to drop all the way down to 1° Fahrenheit (the coldest night in 10 years, reportedly), and that makes for weather most folks want to avoid. It's also caused a few cancelations and postponements tonight, show-wise.
Glasslands is closed tonight, meaning the early show of Yvette, Christines and Future Punx has been postponed till February 21. All tickets will be honored and refunds are available at point of purchase.
Tonight's late show with Toronto's Egyptrixx was also canceled, but he'll now be DJing at Cameo's basement with Judge Wise, and Evan Michael. Tickets are $5 with RSVP. From the looks of Glasslands' twitter, his show there (which would have been the NYC debut of his A/V show) will still be rescheduled at some point.
And Swearin' were to have headlined Brooklyn Night Bazaar tonight, but "due to the inclement weather and the fact that [they] are all scattered along the east coast at the moment, [they[ are unfortunately going to have to cancel." The three other bands on the bill -- Cymbals Eat Guitars, Porcelain Raft and Low Fat Getting High -- are still playing and that show is free.
And, as mentioned, Saturday's (1/4) Stryper show at Stage 48 ain't happening.
Whatever you do tonight, wrap up tight and stay warm. Any other cancellations we missed?
Lauryn Hill at Rock the Bells 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Lauryn Hill has been on her short homecoming tour, having just played Boston on Wednesday (12/18). But now, like she did with one of her November Bowery Ballroom shows, she's postponed more of the upcoming NYC-area dates. Her Count Basie Theatre show which would have happened on Sunday (12/22) was moved to February 7, and her Capitol Theatre show which would have happened on 12/28 was moved to January 31. Tickets for the new dates at Count Basie and the Capitol are on sale, and all tickets purchased for the original dates will be honored. Her Long Island show, scheduled to happen at The Paramount on
December 26, appears to still be on at the moment but we'll keep you posted if that changes (tickets).
UPDATE: The Paramount show was moved to January 26.
Updated dates are listed below...
First Brooklyn Bowl announced that Black Star (Talib Kweli & Yasiin Bey) would perform tonight, then that was cancelled and it was announced that Yasiin (fka Mos Def) would play tonight (12/17) at Highline Ballroom. Well, now that show is not happening either. Says Highline's website: "This show has been postponed due to circumstances beyond Yasiin's control. New date TBA. Refunds available point of purchase."
UPDATE: Though Mos Def and Black Star's shows are cancelled, Talib Kweli & Friends are now set to play Brooklyn Bowl tonight (12/17) with a live band and special guest Jean Grae. Tickets for tonight's show are on sale now. Let's hope this one actually happens.
Lauryn Hill at Rock the Bells 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
As discussed, Lauryn Hill has some homecoming shows scheduled, which would have included two (early and late) TONIGHT (11/27) at Bowery Ballroom and a number of December dates. Tonight's early show has been postponed until December 10 "due to weather," but her late show is still on. All tickets for the early show will be honored at the 12/10 show, refunds are available, and they will not be valid at tonight's late show. $100 tickets are still available for the late show.
UPDATE: we also have two pairs of tickets to give away to the late show. If you want a chance of winning them, check out the instructions below.
