In light of recent health developments, Low have had to cancel upcoming overseas tour dates. The American indie rock duo have issued a statement, explaining how ‘changes’ in Mimi Parker’s cancer treatment have made ‘travel impossible at this time’.
Diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2020, Parker first opened up about her condition early this year, discussing it in a January episode of the SHEROES Radio podcast.
The cancellations will impact a number of overseas appearances, including their 26th August All Points East and 27th August Connect Festival appearances in the UK. The band took to Instagram to share the update, writing: “We have to cancel our upcoming shows this month in Wales, Scandinavia, England, and Scotland.”
“As some of you know, Mimi has been fighting cancer. Recent developments and changes in treatment have made extensive travel impossible at this time. Our hope is that she will respond to new treatments and be able to play the shows we have scheduled for the fall, including the Water Is Life festival in Duluth on September 4.”
“We are very sorry for the inconvenience of ticket shuffling and travel expenses/changes. We welcome your positive hopes/prayers as we hope and pray for you all. Thank you. Peace.”
