This year's instalment of the Railroad Revival tour - set to feature Band of Horses and Willie Nelson - has been cancelled due to "certain complications".
An ambitious proposition, the Railroad Revival tour boards several high profile acts onto a steam train. This year, Band of Horses and Willie Nelson were set to perform, with the locomotive stopping off at various points across the United States.
Sadly, though, it seems that the tour will not be going ahead. A statement from the Railroad Revival tour organisers confirmed the news, citing "certain complications" as the reason behind their decision. Find the statement below:

It is with extreme regret that we announce the cancellation of the 2012 Railroad Revival Tour. The decision to do so was a difficult one, but it was determined that certain complications would not permit us to host the shows in the manner intended, and that the bands and fans deserved.
Ticketholders will be receiving a full refund for all costs. All refunds will begin being processed and appear on your credit card statement.
We hope fans will take the opportunity to see these acts in other venues. Thank you.
