UK nu-rave pioneers Klaxons have been forced to cancel the entirety of their upcoming North American tour, citing mysterious ‘unforeseen circumstances’.
The group announced via Facebook that they have cancelled 14 shows in total, including a scheduled stop at California’s Coachella festival. A couple of German festival dates remain on the band’s calendar for June.
Klaxons have offered the rather small consolation to fans of a free download. Anyone with proof of purchase of a ticket for the America shows can get access to download an unreleased song.
In the meantime speculation mounts as to why Klaxons announced the sudden cancellation. Top of list of likely reasons must be visa issues, the bane of many a band’s life.
