My Morning Jacket cancel European dates (again?)

My Morning Jacket’s show at Tripod on 29th Oct has been cancelled due to an injury the singer Jim James had received at a recent show. Refunds for the gig are available from point of purchase.

Didn’t they cancel before?

The band’s full statement is as follows:

“It is with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of My Morning Jacket’s up-coming tour to Europe due to injuries suffered by Jim James in Iowa City. For the fans who have purchased tickets, we would like to extend our gratitude for your support and understanding. Our hope was to merely postpone the tour, but as our scheduling does not allow that to happen in the immediate future, we feel it is best to cancel this tour in hopes of re-scheduling at some point. We would also like to say ‘thank you’ to all the fans who have reached out to Jim with their well-wishes as we all hope for his speedy and full recovery.”

    gutted about this regarded by many as the finest live act around at the moment…can’t be helped though poor old Jimmy took a nasty fall… come back soon guys and get well soon Jim…

    Real disappointed about this alright. Was anticipating it though,after the fall and the Us dates going. Hope Jim gets better soon.
