After canceling their upcoming UK concert tour, Peter Bjorn And John posted the following message to their official web site, peterbjornandjohn.com:
Peter Bjorn And John are deeply and sincerely sorry, but we are unfortunately forced to cancel the upcoming gigs in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Being our first longer UK-run in a couple of years it’s a great shame but due to things out of our control concerning family matters we simply can’t pursue the tour at the moment. These things are a little to personal to go into here, but we really do hope you all understand.
To those of you who have bought tickets and were looking forward to the shows as much as we did, we hope we can come back soon and make it up to you. Refunds will be available from every promoter.
Once again we are truly sad and sorry about this and just know we haven’t forgot you!
Peter Bjorn And John
