Death From Above 1979 cancel shows due to visa issues

Following the recent news that the Canadian duo were going to record a live album at Jack White‘s Third Man Records studio in Nashville next week, Death From Above 1979 have cancelled both that date and three others due to “super unsexy bureaucratic immigration/visa issues.”

“Dudes/dudettes, due to circumstances far beyond our control (immigration/visa issues) we can’t make the first handful of shows this month,” they posted on Twitter. “This is a giant bummer for us. We’ll try to make it up to you soon.”

The cancelled shows are as follows:

16 Nashville, Third Man Records
17 Norfolk, NorV Theatre
18 Richmond, The National
20 DC, Rock & Roll Hotel

Refunds are available from the point of purchase, or fans can keep hold of their tickets in the hope that replacement shows will be announced. All other dates will go ahead as planned.

DFA recently released their second studio album ‘The Physical World’, nearly a decade after their 2004 debut ‘You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine’. The Canadian duo played Glastonbury earlier this year.
