Tonight's Phoenix Show Cancelled Due To Illness

Phoenix at The Paradise, from the HAD Archive

Sorry to say, San Francisco, that Phoenix will not be in the cards this go-round. The band has cancelled tonight's performance at the Regency Grand due to lead singer Thomas Mars being under the weather. From the band's web journal:

"We’re very sorry but we have had to pull out of tonight’s performance at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco.

We are absolutely mortified to have to let you all down but Thomas is unable to sing tonight due to the effects of a viral illness he has contracted. We’re extremely concerned about those of you that bought advance tickets and we will find a way to make sure you can either be refunded or have them swapped for our next SF date in September, which will be announced soon. Please contact your point of purchase for details.

Again, we’re very sorry but there is unfortunately no way for Thomas to do the show and we’d like to thanks you in advance for your understanding."

Total bummer, if we do say so ourselves.

While you're consoling yourself, you may as well watch this killer video (below) of the band performing on Jimmy Kimmel, and then get deciding whether you'll be catching Wilco or Cursive tonight.
