Garbage have announced the cancellation of the European leg of their current world tour – this affects the UK, as well as France and Belgium.
In a recent statement, cancellation was blamed on a heavy workload – it read:
“It is with great regret that Garbage have decided to cancel their visit to France, Belgium and the UK in October.
Having been constantly on the road since the beginning of March the band feel they have somewhat overextended themselves and have mutually decided to conclude their tour at the end of September in Australia. The band wish to extend their apologies to all Garbage fans in the territories involved and thank them profusely for their support. All tickets will of course be refunded.”
Given that this is only the bands second tour in the last seven years, one can only presume the rigours of old age are setting in!
The UK dates affected are:
12 Manchester Apollo
14 Cardiff Arena
16 Portsmouth Guildhall
17 London Hammersmith Apollo
20 Birmingham NIA
22 Glasgow Academy
23 Edinburgh Usher Hall
