This is our third time we have bought tick, planned the night, and then the show was cancelled. Twice in Cleveland and once in Detroit. This one is is the dagger in the heart. Took off work, paying for hotels, planned the kids for overnight. We just may need to find another band. KOL - come play a dive bar in my home town, we deserve it at this point. Show the great lakes some love fellas.

Stop getting fucked up and cancelling shows assholes.This is why most Americans think you suck. Go hang out in the UK where they put up with your bullshit.

Get well soon- true fans will stick around. It stinks the band is human and life happens. Plus it's not like any other job where someone can just fill in. The fans wouldn't want to pay to see a replacement. I was lucky to see them in Boston and it was amazing. Honestly a band that sounds just as good live as they do recorded is rare. So to all the ticket holders be patient you will not be disappointed.
