Interpol Scrap Majority Of U.s. Tour

Rockers INTERPOL have been forced to pull a string of dates from their U.S. tour after losing their support slot on U2's cancelled North American trek.
U2 scrapped all live dates for the summer (10) after frontman Bono was required to undergo emergency surgery in Munich, Germany last week (21May10).
New York band Interpol was due to open for the Irish superstars on their 360 Degree shows in June (10) and July (10) - but they've now had to reroute their tour as a result of U2's decision.
Only four of Interpol's original 15 dates remain but the group has promised to make amends to their fans for the change of plan.
In a message on their website, the rockers say, "Unfortunately, due to the postponement of the upcoming U2 US dates, Interpol has had to rework its summer tour schedule.
"With the exception of four shows, we have had to cancel our announced dates. Shows in Rochester, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and Allentown will be happening. The rest of the shows will be rescheduled...
"We lament the change in plans, apologise for the inconvenience, and assure you that we'll do you right - when the time is right and the light is nice."
