After taking Brooklyn and Manhattan, Phoenix took off to the West coast to do Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix standard “Lisztomania” on Jimmy Kimmel. It’s a mostly spirited performance, Thomas Hedlund hitting the drums much harder than he needs to, to great effect. As the above thumb might suggest, though, Thomas Mars looks a tad more out of it than usual. He had an excuse: The guy’s sick. In fact, the Frenchmen had to cancel this Saturday’s performance at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco because of it. Watch the show, then read Phoenix’s sick note.
Via We Are Phoenix:
We’re very sorry but we have had to pull out of tonight’s performance at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco.
We are absolutely mortified to have to let you all down but Thomas is unable to sing tonight due to the effects of a viral illness he has contracted. We’re extremely concerned about those of you that bought advance tickets and we will find a way to make sure you can either be refunded or have them swapped for our next SF date in September, which will be announced soon. Please contact your point of purchase for details.
Again, we’re very sorry but there is unfortunately no way for Thomas to do the show and we’d like to thanks you in advance for your understanding.
June 29th update
We’re still working out the details of how to sort out those of you that bought tickets in advance for the show. Since it was a Festival rather than our own headline show it makes it a little more complicated. We can assure you however that we promise to honour all advance tickets by either swapping them or refunding. Please give us a little time and well let you know ASAP. Thanks for your patience.
No problem. Otherwise, the tour’s continuing.
