Wilco cancels UK shows

Wilco is canceling their UK dates this fall, reports Pitchfork. The band, citing ''"scheduling conflicts,''" is backing out of the shows but ''"hopes to schedule new UK dates soon.''"
On the sunny side, Wilco has added some March dates in the Australia/New Zealand area (sorry''continent) and will be keeping their other European dates on the fall planner.
In response to my instant message of ''"Hey man, canceling on the UK ain'''t right''what is this, the Sky Gray Sky tour?''" JeffTweedyFan1 replied ''"I am currently playing a computer game that takes up the whole screen.''"
Here is your newly updated Wilco show-roll; the space between New Orleans and Brussels represents England'''s broken heart.

Tour Cancellation

Scheduling conflict? Quite obviously they dropped UK fans and gigs because they had more lucrative offers elsewhere.I emailed their management company asking what that offer might be that was so good it was worth cancelling their shows here.They declined to tell me but tried to buy me off with free tickets at one of the European gigs (I'd have still been £200 out of pocket after paying air fairs, never mind hotel bills).They also offered me anything I wanted from the Wilco catalogue.Again I declined and asked again what the conflict was - what the better offer was? They wouldn't say.It stinks. And with respect to this website, you shouldn't just be parroting their excuse. How come nobody in the media wants to question their motives?
