Conor Oberst Hospitalized, Desaparecidos Cancel Tour

Over the past few months, Desparecidos have been on tour in support of their new album, Payola — their first in 13 years — but they’ve been forced to cancel the rest of their dates after frontman Conor Oberst was hospitalized after a bad case of “laryngitis, anxiety, and exhaustion,” according to a press release. It started with a cancellation of a show in Jacksonville last night, but now all of their dates have been cancelled, including sets at the Fest and Fun Fun Fun Fest. Here’s a statement from their label, Epitaph:

Desaparecidos has been forced to cancel the remainder of their US tour dates. Conor Oberst fell ill while on tour in Jacksonville, Florida and was briefly hospitalized due to laryngitis, anxiety, and exhaustion. In consultation with his doctors, the band has reluctantly agreed to cancel all scheduled live dates. Conor will be heading home to Omaha to recuperate. We wish him a speedy recovery.
