My Morning Jacket have just pulled their European tour through online statementing:
It is with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of My Morning Jacket's up-coming tour to Europe due to injuries suffered by Jim in Iowa City. For the fans who have purchased tickets, we would like to extend our gratitude for your support and understanding. Our hope was to merely postpone the tour, but as our scheduling does not allow that to happen in the immediate future, we feel it is best to cancel this tour in hopes of re-scheduling at some point.
We would also like to say 'thank you' to all the fans who have reached out to Jim with their well-wishes as we all hope for his speedy and full recovery.
In what seems to be a pre-emptive over-reaction backlash, the reaction on the band's forum has started with a prediction of "why do you hate Europe" posts that, so far, have failed to materialise.
