Elvis Costello & the Imposters were to kick off secondleg of tour in Mobile next Thursday, however due to family illness, the show has been cancelled. We certainly pray for the best for the very talented Mr. Costello and hope the show will get rescheduled.
Here’s the official press release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
It is with regret and sorrow that Elvis Costello announces that he must delay the start of next leg of “The Spectacular Spinning Songbook Tour” until the 24th of September in Atlanta. This is due to matters pertaining to the very serious illness of a close family member. All shows prior to the 24th will be postponed.
A spokesman for the tour stressed that Mr. Costello’s wife and children were in excellent health but declined to elaborate further hoping that people would understand the desire and need for calm and privacy at this difficult time.
Ticket holders for the shows from September 15th though September 22nd should contact the venue box office or Ticketmaster for further details. It is hoped that all of these dates will be rescheduled as early as possible in 2012.
