Here's a bummer for band and fans alike: British garage pop upstarts The Vaccines have canceled their North American tour, including their Sept. 22 show at Newport Music Hall with Tennis and Young Buffalo. A note on the band's official site cites throat surgery for singer Justin Young, his third such operation this year:
"As I have said before, we understand any anger or upset, but we hope you all understand that we are completely devastated by this problem that has continued to plague us personally and professionally during the best year of our lives. Cancelling shows in exchange for repeated hospital visits plain f---ing sucks."
Tickets for the canceled Newport show are refundable at the point of purchase.
