Back Stroke: Julian Casablancas + The Voidz cancel North American tour over stage set-up

Less than a month before they were set to play an 11-date North American tour that included two New England dates, Julian Casablancas + The Voidz have cancelled all shows due to complications regarding their stage set up.

The Strokes frontman and his band were set to play Pearl Street in Northampton on October 13 and Toad’s Place in New Haven, Connecticut, the following night, but today relayed word the whole “Immaculate Powerlords Tour” would be scrapped.

Here’s the message from JC and the Voidz boys, via Consequence of Sound:

“With great regret, we need to cancel our upcoming shows in North America.

We had set out to do something a bit different with these shows and create more of an experience that would be inspiring to our fans as well as to the band. In order to make this work we needed many pieces to fall into place that just didn’t.

Everyone will of course be given a full refund.

We are going to regroup and re-approach this in the way it was intended, and soon.
