The Go-Gos cancel summer tour dates due to injury

It’s always sad when a great band decides to hang up their axes and call it a day. Even with a farewell tour, it’s a sad sight to see any group leave the rock and roll arena. What’s even more sad than that is when a band doesn’t even get a chance to say goodbye.  Such is the case now with The Go-Gos and their Happily Ever After – The Farewell Tour. Thanks to some extracurricular activity, guitarist Jane Wiedlin is sidelined with an injury.

Oh, but what an injury it was. Turns out a few weeks back, Wiedlin fell 20-feet off the side of a cliff, tearing her ACL. With surgery scheduled in a couple of weeks, Wiedlin is looking at a year-long recovery time. The tour, which would’ve kicked off July 7th in San Diego, CA and spanned 13 dates before wrapping up on July 27th in Austin, TX, would’ve have been the end of a long run of consistent touring, dating back to 1999.

Refunds are available at the point of purchase. We’ll keep you updated regarding any touring updates.
