Kings of Convenience Postpone North American Tour

    EMI Music has just put out word that Norway’s Kings of Convenience have postponed their North American tour — their first in five years. Why? Well, they don’t say. They only mention it was pushed back due to “unforseen circumstances.”

     

    New dates have been rescheduled for June and current ticket-holders’ tickets will be honored.

     

    As a consolation for the postponement, ticket-holders will given an opportunity to download an exclusive track, “Love is No Big Truth,” for free via their local promoter. The tune was recorded for Italian radio and will be available on the band’s upcoming iTunes exclusive EP “Live Acoustic Sessions: Milan,” due out Feb. 23.
