this is unfortunate

6 Nov

don’t bank on bands.

The Decemberists have canceled the remainder of their “Long and Short of It” tour, which was to include The WYEP Holiday Concert Nov. 13 at Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland.

The band said in statement: “One of our band members has been ill [and] we need to return home so our friend can mend. It saddens us to disappoint our fans. … Our deepest apologies but at this time no plans are being made to reschedule the dates.”

Purchased tickets for the concert, which was to be a benefit for the Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse and Family Resources, will be refunded through the original payment method. Details: www.proartstickets.org.

    I was debating getting tickets when I saw the news… just in time, I guess. Hopefully they’ll be back soon.
