When the Cure canceled their NYC gig this past weekend, I got worried. Happily, there were no drug overdoses or motorcycle crashes; no one even fell out of a coconut tree.
Instead, believe it or not, the whole tour was postponed until Spring 2008, for artistic reasons! The band finished their new album late, and did not feel they had time to rehearse a new live show properly.
In this era of Britney and other Barbies being unable even to lip-sync a performance adequately, it's a delight that a band cares enough to take the financial hit involved in postponing a tour, simply to make it better.
