Bad Lieutenant cancels another U.S. tour

    “We’re stuck in Manchester… We were hoping that conditions might change at the last minute and we’d be able to come and play for our fans. Obviously, this is a situation out of everyone’s control, and we are crushed that we won’t be coming to America for these dates.”

    Bad Lieutenant frontman Bernard Sumner announces that his band’s upcoming U.S. tour, which included a spot at last weekend’s Coachella Music Festival, has been canceled.

    This marks the second time in as many years that the U.K. outfit has been forced to postpone a trip to the states. The first time, the IRS was to blame. This time, it’s Eyjafjallajokull, the Icelandic volcano.


    Refunds will be available for ticket holder at the point of purchase. The one plus side? You have more time to read Michael Roffman’s recent feature on Sumner.
