Neon Trees Cancels Phoenix's Orpheum Theatre Concert

So few concerts come through downtown Phoenix's majestic Orpheum Theatre that when one cancels, it's always a shame.

Unfortunately, that's the case for October 5 Neon Trees show.

The Provo, Utah, mega-poppers announced that they had to cancel several upcoming tour dates due to health reasons.

Here's the statement:

"Neon Trees regretfully must postpone some dates of their upcoming fall tour due to health issues of bassist Branden Campbell, who recently underwent open-heart surgery for a valve replacement. The intense touring schedule has been exhaustive and doctors have advised Campbell to slow down.

"We had initially thought we should cancel the entire tour, but Branden wouldn't let us, thus the new abridged dates can be found on our website www.fameisdead.com. We are very sorry that we are postponing some of our upcoming dates. Obviously, our bass player's health must come first, and we thank all of our fans for understanding. We will make it up to you in the near future - we promise."
