Are Coldplay blowing off South America? It kind of seems like it. Last year, the band scheduled a trek across the continent that was set to kick off on Feb. 13 of this year in Chile, then it promplty announced that the dates would be rescheduled for later in 2013. Now, the British rockers have revealed that the none of the tour will be made up and all the gigs are officially cancelled.

Coldplay broke the news in an open letter to fans posted on their official website. The note read:

“Dear friends in Latin America,

We’re sad to say that, due to circumstances beyond our control, we’re unable to reschedule the postponed Mylo Xyloto tour dates in 2013. For this we’re very sorry. It may seem small consolation now but we’ll definitely have your corner of the world at the front of our minds when the time comes to do it all again. Thank you for your incredible patience and support.”

We’re not picking on Coldplay — trust us, they get picked on enough as it is — but “circumstances beyond our control” usually have something to do with money. That, or they can’t get visas to Paraguay because some sort of legal issues that Will Champion is hiding from us. If it were something straight-forward and reasonable, wouldn’t they just say what it is?

At least our friends in South America will get first crack at them next time around. Then again, with the band on a reported three-year hiatus, it could be a long time before they get back down there.
