Bloc Party cancels remaining tour dates

    As previously reported, Bloc Party drummer Matt Tong recently suffered a collapsed lung that forced the band to cancel a series of dates on its current North American tour with Panic! At The Disco. We can now tell you that Bloc Party has had to drop out of the tour entirely now, as doctors have advised Tong against playing for several weeks.
    The following is taken from a press release:
    “While Matt is on the road to recovery doctors have advised that he not travel or play again for another few weeks in order to give his lung time to properly heal.”
    “We would like to apologize to all of our fans here who won’t be able to see us on this tour. We were looking forward to playing in a number of American cities that we’ve never been to before, however, Matt’s health is our number one priority right now.”
    We here at Prefix hope Matt enjoys a speedy recovery.
