National indie rock band Dashboard Confessional was set to embark on a North American tour, but the group just postponed the tour — and cancelled its Nov. 9 Denver show. The tour was supposed to coincide with the band’s new CD “Alter the Ending,” but a press release says the road trip will resume in 2010.
The Fillmore concert was also set to feature local-turned-national band Single File.
The cancellation is still cloaked in a bit of mystery, but here’s what Dashboard had to say in a press release:
We have some bad news. Due to a family situation that is beyond our control, we have to cancel our upcoming tour with New Found Glory, Never Shout Never, Meg & Dia and Single File…. We don’t take this lightly, but family comes first. As this is a last minute development, we are still figuring out what we will do — as soon as we know, you will know. We apologize to everyone who planned on coming to the shows. We will find a way to make it up to you.
Chris, John, Scott, Mike/Dashboard Confessional
That same message is posted on the band’s website.
Fortunately, Denver band Single File is still set to tour with the Absolute-Punk.Net Tour in November.
