Just received word that the Damned, slated to appear at the Bluebird Theater with Danko Jones and the Nicotine Fits on Wednesday, October 28, has been forced to cancel all of the dates on its upcoming American tour. According to a post on the band's site, the cancellation stems from the fact that visas have yet to be approved for the members. No word yet on where this leaves ticket holders. We'll update you as more information becomes available. Damnit, man!
