Illness results in cancelled Sleater Kinney tour

Three-piece rock and roll combo Sleater-Kinney have been forced to cancel their upcoming UK and European dates because of guitarist/singer Carrie Brownstein’s ill health.

The band’s tour was due to kick off on 8 Nov at Brighton’s Concorde 2 but the band explain: “Sleater-Kinney regretfully must cancel their November European dates on account of medical issues. Guitarist/singer Carrie Brownstein has suffered two severe allergic reactions within the past four months, both resulting in trips to the emergency room. Her doctor has advised that she not travel/tour for prolonged periods of time until the condition stabilises and further tests are conducted. The band apologizes to all the people that this cancellation affects.”

The aim is to reschedule the cancelled dates in the Spring, when the band return to curate the All Tomorrows’ Parties event at the Camber Sands holiday part from 19-21 May.

Get well soon Carrie!
