The Julie Ruin cancel summer tour dates after Kathleen Hanna suffers lyme disease relapse

The Julie Ruin @ FFF Fest 2013 (more by Tim Griffin)
Kathleen Hanna / Julie Ruin

Unfortunate news from Kathleen Hanna and The Julie Ruin, who were set to tour this summer:

Hey All, we are ridiculously sad to announce that all shows/appearances are cancelled until September 2014. Kathleen has been outspoken about her struggle with Lyme Disease and she is currently having a health crisis and has been advised by her doctor to start a difficult 3-month course of treatment immediately. The treatment plan will make it impossible for her to travel. We are disappointed to postpone these appearances, however we are confident that taking this time off will allow Kathleen to heal so that we can continue touring in the future. Thank you so much for your support and we are so sorry we can’t come out and see you right now.

Most of those Julie Ruin tour dates were in Europe but did include the Pitchfork Music Festival and a headlining slot at this year’s 4Knots Festival at NYC’s South Street Seaport. Feel better, Kathleen!
