It was brought to my attention from a UK Twitter follower that the Grammy-winning Americana chamber pop duo The Civil Wars have cancelled upcoming shows in Michigan, Florida and overseas 2013 tour dates including Australia & New Zealand. I can’t find any details on the reason but it must be pretty serious and private since there is no
no official word on their Facebook page (The reason on their Facebook page cited “personal reasons”) or from their Twitter account aside from the standard “regret” response. The duo is currently on the European leg of their tour.
Here’s hoping everything is okay with John Paul, Joy and their families.
Check Australia’s Orange Press for information on refunds in that part of the world.
EDIT: This sad news just posted on the band’s Twitter account Facebook page: “We sincerely apologize for the canceling of all of our tour dates. It is something we deeply regret. However, due to internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition we are unable to continue as a touring entity at this time. We thank each and every one of you for your amazing love & support. Our sincere hope is to have new music for you in 2013.
- Joy Williams & John Paul White.”
