The Money Shot: The Decemberists, Smashing Pumpkins, Led Zep and The Cribs Cancel Gigs

The latest headlines...

The Decemberists Cancel Remainder of Tour (NME)
MS: "One of our band members has been ill for a while but we thought all would be well in time for these tour dates. After a couple shows, though, it has become clear that the illness is much worse than we had initially realized. We need to return home so our friend can mend. It saddens us to disappoint our fans. We hope everybody understands it is only because of an extreme situation that we had to cancel a tour we've all been excited about doing since the idea was originally hatched."

The Cribs Cancel North American Tour (NME)
MS: The Cribs have cancelled their forthcoming North American tour, citing scheduling conflicts. The band will announce new dates soon as part of a more "substantial US and Canadian tour", according to a statement.

Chamberlain Sick, Pumpkins Reschedule Dates (Pitchfork)
MS: Experiencing chest pains, Chamberlain was taken to an Atlanta hospital Tuesday where he was diagnosed with a partially blocked artery. He was released yesterday, but due to his recovery, the band was forced to shelve their last two shows and the next three, all of which have been moved back a few weeks starting November 11. All tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates.

Led Zeppelin Reunion Concert Postponed (MTV)
MS: Led Zeppelin fans will have to wait a bit longer for the band's reunion concert, thanks to guitarist Jimmy Page breaking his finger over the weekend. The injury will not allow him to play guitar for three weeks, according to a statement from the group's label. The show has been rescheduled for December 10.
