Following more than a year of straight touring, Josh is suffering from vocal exhaustion and is under doctor’s orders to rest his vocal cords for a minimum of 4-6 weeks. Matt, Max, Chris, Dan, and of course, Josh, are therefore sorry and disappointed to announce the unavoidable postponement of their upcoming North America Tour, which was due to start in LA on April 21st. Given Josh’s need for rest, the band is unable to perform at the high energy level for which they’re known.
ALL VIP & GA tickets for the tour will be valid for the rescheduled shows, which will now run from September 15th through October 20th. The new shows...

I guess it's a big deal or a "scandal" or something in the blogosphere that some celebrities are being paid to go to Coachella and hang out this year. I'll continue not caring at all and being jealous no one pays me to show up places. Hey, McDonalds: I mouse over your banner ad at least once a day and blow my ear drums out -- a few free passes, yeah?
