Wilco Cancel Upcoming Dates

Published: 2004-04-19
As previously reported on Soul Shine, Wilco has already had to push back the release date of their new record 'A Ghost Is Born' due to lead singer Jeff Tweedy's admittance to rehab. The band has decided to also cancel upcoming tour dates, including their performance at Coachella, in order to give Tweedy the best possible chance to recover from his addiction to painkillers.

The band had no Canadian cities scheduled on their upcoming tour but refunds are available for all of the cancelled dates except for Coachella. Wilco will not begin to tour again until May 28th, when they are scheduled to play at a festival in Spain.

Posted on Wilco's official website is this message:
"Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause…See you out there soon... but just a little later than we'd hoped."
More information about the cancelled dates can be found on Wilco's site at www.wilcoworld.net.
