Mastodon Cancel Tour with Dinosaur Jr.

0

Well, this stinks: due to a “a critical situation of a member of the Mastodon family,” Mastodon have canceled their upcoming tour with Dinosaur Jr. and Netherlands which was set to kick off this Saturday (September 1st) and hit several Canadian cities with a few shows in the upper Midwest U.S. The band themselves have not yet issued a statement, but several venues on the tour put out the same copy like this one from the Clyde Theatre in Fort Wayne, IN:

“CANCELLATION ALERT: @mastodonmusic regrets to inform fans that due to a critical situation of a member of the Mastodon family, their upcoming tour with Dinosaur Jr. will be cancelled. Tickets and VIP upgrades will be refunded at point of purchase.”

No word on whether the band plans to reschedule the shows, but for all of our Canadian friends I sure hope they do. We’ll keep you posted. Meanwhile, we send all the best to the Mastodudes and their families, and hope that whatever it is keeping them home resolves itself soon without too much trouble.
