New York rockers the White Hills have scrapped their entire European tour due to family illness.
The band was due to kick off the trek in Berlin, Germany next month (06Nov10) before planned concerts in Italy, Spain and the U.K.
But the 17 gigs have now been cancelled so singer Dave W. can be close to his relatives.
In a message on the White Hills' MySpace.com page Dave writes, "Much to our disappointment, we regretfully have to cancel our upcoming Euro Tour due to an unexpected illness in my family.
"News on when we will be back touring Europe will come soon."
