Spoon Cancel All Upcoming Dates Due To Illness

Published: 2005-04-01
Due to an unexpected family illness, beloved Texas quartet Spoon will have to disappoint fans around the world and cancel both of their European and North American jaunts. It came as a shock to all members of Spoon when they learned that their dear Grandpappy Dish was suddenly stricken with an incurable case of Broken Chinaitus÷or we can just stop now÷

÷Soul Shine had to join in on the April Fools' Day festivities in one way or another, did we not? As lame an attempt as it might be, at least we can say we tried...right?...right?

Horrible attempts at shocking our readers aside, Spoon HAVE NOT cancelled any of their upcoming performances, and word is Grandpappy Dish is doing fine and dandy at the moment. In fact the indie rockers (minus Grandpappy) will be spending the better part of the sunny months touring the globe, first in Europe with Interpol, and then across North America with The Clientele.

The band's North American run isn't set to get under way until Coachella at the end of April, wrapping up 22 performances later in Spoon's hometown of Austin, Texas. There are just two Canadian stops in the band's future: one in Vancouver, and of course, one in Toronto. All this running about comes in support of the band's forthcoming fifth studio album "Gimme Fiction", which is due to hit shelves on May 9th.

Spoon's upcoming Canadian gigs:

June 5 Toronto, ON - Lee's Palace
June 17 Vancouver, BC - Commodore Ballroom
