Bad news for fans of Joanna Newsom living in and around Los Angeles. The singer-songwriter has canceled all five of her December dates due to “unforeseen issues” with the Hollywood Legion Theater.
On Friday afternoon, her label Drag City issued a statement:
Bummer news, people: Due to unforeseen issues with the Hollywood Legion Theater, Joanna Newsom’s five shows at the venue in December have regrettably been canceled. Joanna greatly shares in the disappointment of ticketholders, and the search for an appropriate new venue at which the shows can be rescheduled in the future will continue. All online ticket purchases will now be automatically refunded. Refunds for tickets purchased elsewhere are available at the place of purchase.
Elsewhere, the “String/Keys Incident Tour” will continue as planned, which should be quite a treat for those who can attend. In her review of Newsom’s Philadelphia stop, writer Irene Monokandillos called it a “lionhearted return” and a “a charming evening of career-spanning ragtime. So, don’t hesitate to grab tickets now and make the proper accommodations, especially if you’re out of luck in the City of Angels.
