Julian Casablancas Cancels Tour
Julian Casablancas, The Strokes frontman, was set to embark on The Immaculate Powerlords Tour in North America starting in September 2015, but the band announced on Monday, August 17, 2015, that the tour will not be possible.
A statement reads: “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. In order to make this work we needed many pieces to fall into place that just didn’t. We are going to regroup and re-approach this in the way it was intended, and soon.” Fans with tickets to the 10-city tour will be given full refunds. Just last December 2014, Casablancas and The Voidz also scrapped a tour in Asia and Australia due to “unforeseen logistical circumstances”.
