Scissor Sisters announced on their official web site on Monday (October 25) they have been forced to cancel their upcoming shows on mainland Europe, blaming it on funding issues. The band stated:
We’re saddened to discover that we are unable to play our scheduled tour dates through Europe. We’re genuinely sorry about this frustrating situation. We’ll try to make it up to you and return to these beautiful cities soon.
Refunds are available from the point of purchase for all nine of the canceled shows, which were due to take place between October 29th and November 14th. All other upcoming Scissor Sisters dates, including December’s UK arena tour, remain unaffected.
