Passion Pit Cancel More 2012 Tour Dates
One week after canceling several dates on their 2012 summer tour -- and just one day after the release of their much-anticipated new album, 'Gossamer' -- Passion Pit have announced that they will be nixing three more concerts on the jaunt.
Passion Pit revealed the initial changes on July 16 in a note from frontman Michael Angelakos that explained that he would taking time off "to work on improving [his] mental health." This latest round of itinerary changes comes with a new notice from the band, along with the first round of rescheduled shows as part of their fall tour.
Thanks to everyone for all of their love and support throughout these past couple weeks. While we're excited to see you over the next two weekends at Lollapalooza, Osheaga and Outside Lands, we're sorry to let you know that we need to postpone our upcoming weekday shows in Colorado and Salt Lake City in order for Michael to continue to improve his mental health and complete a procedure that week.
We know that this is disappointing to fans who were planning on coming to these shows, and we want you to know we're doing everything we can to try and make it up to you. In fact, we are happy to announce three rescheduled dates from last week in Charlotte/Nashville/Knoxville-- the shows will take place in September as part of our fall tour. And we'll keep you posted on Colorado/Salt Lake City as soon as we can. Please visit the tour page for a list of all current tour dates.
We appreciate everyone's support and patience. We'll see you soon.
As their updated itinerary indicates, Passion Pit return to the road in August. No more details about Angelakos' mental issues have been announced, but our thoughts are with him and the band as we wish him a speedy recovery.
