The band have had to cancel all dates on their recently announced tour
of the US, Canada and Australia, official announcement from Mark
It is with great regret that The Bluetones are forced to announce
the post-ponement of their planned shows in New York, Chicago, San Francisco,
Los Angeles, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne.
The band were looking forward to playing these shows but due
to circumstances over which we have had no control, are not in a position
to fulfil these commitments.
Due to legal reasons it cannot be discussed here the exact nature
of what has caused the cancellations, but rest assured the picture will
be made clear for everybody as soon we have the full facts in front
of us. Again, I can only stress that this was not a decision that was
taken by the band, so much as made for, and unbeknownst to, us.
I cannot properly express the heartbreak all of this is causing
us, and apoligize sincerely for any dis-appointment felt by people who
have already purchased tickets for these shows. We will try to re-schedule
as soon as possible, although that is probably small consolation right
As it stands we may well be able to play the scheduled gig in
Japan, we are trying to salvage that this week, but if there is any
change there will be immediate notification.
I'm so sorry to everyone, but we intend to bounce right back
from this and get out to the cities we have so looked forward to playing
for the best part of this year, as soon as possible.
We feel like we've been kicked in the teeth....love Mark. x x
