¡Panic! at the Disco & Bloc Party Concert

This is really old news, but I just saw someone trying to sell tickets on Craig's List to the ¡Panic! at the Disco/Bloc Party show at iPayOne this weekend so I thought I would remind everyone that Bloc Party cancelled the entire second half of the tour because the drummer's lung collapsed while playing.


Bloc Party has announced the cancellation of
the remainder of their current US tour with Panic! at the Disco due to drummer
Matt Tong's health after being admitted to an Atlanta hospital with a collapsed
lung last Thursday night.

While Matt is on the road to recovery,
doctors have advised that he not travel or play again for another few weeks in
order to give his lung time to properly heal.

Frontman Kele Okereke says, "We would like to
apologize to all of our fans here who won't be able to see us on this tour. We
were looking forward to playing in a number of American cities that we've never
been to before, however, Matt's health is our number one priority right
Ticket refunds will be available at point-of-purchase. Ticket holders
are encouraged to return their tickets within the next week.
