The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas and his side project Julian Casablancas & The Voids, have recently cancelled their upcoming US tour. The tour also included several other dates in Canada as well.
The tour was organised to promote the band’s newest album Tyranny, which came out at the end of last year. The reason for the cancellation according to the band is their failure to “create more of an experience that would be inspiring to our fans.”
The full press release from the band read “With great regret, we need to cancel our upcoming shows in North America. We had set out to do something a bit different with these shows and create more of an experience that would be inspiring to our fans as well as to the band.”
They continued on by saying “In order to make this work we needed many pieces to fall into place that just didn’t. Everyone will, of course, be given a full refund. We are going to regroup and re-approach this in the way it was intended, and soon.”
Hopefully we will hear more about the cancelled tour and if they can find a way to make it work like they want to very soon.
