The Boxer Rebellion Cancel North American Tour : (


I'm so bummed that this just popped up on my news feed. I've been a fan of this band ever since I first saw then in Going the Distance, and have been looking forward to their 11/17 show at World Cafe Live ever since they announced their tour. I can only imagine what personal tragedy they've endured, and I wish them the best. I really REALLY hope to see them next year.

LETTER FROM THE BAND:
Dear Friends,
Due to personal tragedy we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel our upcoming appearances in Mexico, Canada, and the United States.
Rest assured your tickets will be refunded in full by your ticket office (or ourselves if you purchased via theboxerrebellion.com).
For those of you who ordered posters from our website – we are sure they will retain their value and bring you great pleasure, however if you would like us to refund you please emailrefunds@theboxerrebellion.com.
We are incredibly sorry to bear this bad news, and sincerely hope to see you all when we’re back on tour in 2012, which we will be.
Our December tour schedule will remain unaffected.
Your support and understanding is sincerely appreciated by us all.
-Adam, Nathan, Piers, Todd
