Kaiser Chiefs cancel most of tour, ATL show
Just an FYI to the C&T readers who might care... the Kaiser Chiefs show at Atlanta's Roxy Theater on September 22 has been cancelled. They've scrapped the whole tour other than the New York and Austin dates, citing a need to focus on new material. D'oh. Here's the statement from drummer Nick Hodgson:
We’d like to apologize to fans in America and Canada, especially those who have already bought tickets, but something had to give. We’ve been extremely busy all year and had no time to focus on the future, we plan to have new material out as soon as possible and we’ve wanted to record all summer. This needs to happen before our European & UK shows at the end of the year so we can play a few of our new songs live, we’re keen to explore new ground, beyond the sound of our first two records, so we’re headed back into the studio to begin that process.
