Weezer, Black Label Society, Keith Urban, and More Cancel Phoenix Dates

Look, I've had my differences with Weezer. The band has done some things in the past decade that I have a hard time forgiving. But Hurley, the band's last record, wasn't that bad, and I was into seeing them at the State Fair -- because what is the State Fair for if not seeing bands you kind of want to see?

But my hopes have been dashed -- along with those of folks wanting to see Keith Urban, Black Label Society, Dave Matthews Band affiliated guitarist Tim Reynolds, and more. We've got a whole spate of canceled gigs to report about. And that sucks. Even more than "Troublemaker."

There's no sign of anything other than coincidence linking these cancellations, but it sure does suck to lose all these shows.

Canceled gigs:

Tim Reynolds and TR3, Monday, Sept. 19, at the Rhythm Room.

Black Label Society, Friday, October 2 at Foundry on First. Keith Urban, Friday, October 7, at Arena.

Miami Horror October 28, at Crescent Ballroom. Weezer, November 2 at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the Arizona State Fair.

Refunds available at point of purchase.

And now, a Weezer song that doesn't blow to cheer you up:
