Interpol Cancels Tour Dates

Darn You Bono!

Turns out U2 leader Bono's influence is stronger than anyone thought. In addition to bringing attention to third-world debt (good) and attention to the AIDS pandemic (also good) it appears he, or rather his back, has the power to reroute indie rock tours.

After news earlier this month that bassist Carlos D had left Interpol, word came today that due to Bono's emergency back surgery, a large chunk of the now trio's dates opening for U2 had to be scrubbed, along with any headlining dates that might have had on their days off from being openers.

While Interpol is still making good on a series of Northeast U.S. dates, the unexpected cancellation leaves a large gap in their touring schedule. Says the band on their website, "We lament the change in plans, apologize for the inconvenience, and assure you that we'll do you right - when the time is right and the light is nice."
