Unfortunately, Women will be canceling their European tour which was planned to start later this month. Here’s the official statement from their manager, Ian Russell:
“With a heavy heart, we regret to say that the band Women is exhausted and are in need of a break from touring. They have experienced a lot of stress recently, and this culminated in a disastrous public conflict on Friday. Band members have been suffering from poor health, and are in near-exhaustion; as of today, all upcoming shows have been cancelled.
We feel that it’s necessary to emphasize that this is a very difficult time for the band, and is not a trivial decision for a group that has spent as much time touring as they have. The band is a close-knit group of friends that have known each other since elementary school, and the personal health of these individuals forces this decision.
The band would appreciate some privacy as they sort things out and recover.”
It’s definitely a bummer that the tour is off but it was, as Ian mentioned, a very tough decision to make. Right now personal health and well being is most important and everyone at Jagjaguwar is hoping that’s attainable.
