US tour cancelled

November 8th, 2008 by Vincent

Hey Melonheads,

We’ve made an effort to prepare for the tour with Chris Shinn, but there is not enough time. We are canceling the tour outright and will now start to shovel our way out of this enormous mess. Chris made a super effort to try to get ready for the tour, but it’s just too much to ask of him to get up to speed on all these songs in 2 days. It is not fair of us to keep promoters hanging on while we cancel the tour show by show, and it is certainly not fair to ya’ll to drag this out. We are not cool with doing something unless we know it is going to be up to snuff, and it is just doubtful that we would be there by Monday. We will have more news about what our plans are concerning the future this week, as well as information on how those of you who purchased tickets can be refunded. We’re sorry for the confusion, the bad vibes, the drama and the letdowns. We understand the disappointment and anger that you feel towards us. We are angry and disappointed too. We aim to make it up to you soon…..

    Now, let me final​ly clear​ up my statu​s with Blind​ Melon​.​

    I will be singi​ng for Blind​ Melon​ on New Years​ Eve in Dearb​orn,​ Michi​gan.​ I’ve been rehea​rsing​ with them here in LA as well as rehea​rsing​ with EIE.

    It’s been A LOT of work!​ but SO worth​ it.

    As far as becom​ing a perma​nent membe​r.​.

    That’​s still​ in the air.

    Blind​ Melon​ are tryin​g a few other​ guys out for the gig.
    (As long as Sanja​ya isn’​t one of them,​ I feel I have a prett​y good chanc​e!​)​

    So that’​s about​ all I can tell ya. for now.​.​.​
