Ted Leo Cancels Tonight's Cleveland Show

Posted by - 11:11 AM on 08/01/07
Ted Leo has canceled his show that was scheduled to take place tonight in Cleveland, OH.
Message From BandI'm sorry I don't have time to go into great detail, but by way of brief explanation, the person who has been closest to me in my life for the last decade and more has been in and out of the hospital for the past year with a very rare condition. We found out in late June that the particular type of chemotherapy she has been on was not working (hence the UK cancellations earlier this month). She was forced to return to the hospital, for the second time this month, this weekend, and though we were hoping the new course of therapy she is beginning would have started before now, it is, in fact, going to start tomorrow (tomorrow for me as I'm writing this), Wednesday, August 1. This decision would have been made sooner if we'd have had the information sooner, but we were only informed of the final schedule for treatment at 7 PM today, and after much discussion/soul-searching, I have come to the conclusion that this is the right choice to make. I will, hopefully, be able to complete the rest of the tour starting Friday, but I simply cannot leave her as she enters this new phase of treatment. If all goes well tomorrow, there is every reason to hope that it will continue to go well, but I hope you, Cleveland, will understand that in the immediate, I need to remain here in Providence. Once again, I apologize, and I thank you in advance for your understanding.

I feel bad for Ted and his friend. And I feel selfish that I'm really disappointed that I can't go to the show tonight.
