Center for the Arts Rodrigo y Gabriela performance cancelledby jmaloni
We regret to announce that the Rodrigo y Gabriela performance scheduled for Oct. 11, 2010, at UB Center for the Arts (as well as their entire October tour) has been cancelled due to injury.
Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase. Ticketmaster.com and charge by phone purchases will be automatically refunded. Patrons who purchased presale tickets through the Rodrigo y Gabriela fan club will be contacted by MusicToday.com regarding refunds.
The official statement from the group follows below:
"Rodrigo y Gabriela are deeply saddened to announce the cancellation of their forthcoming United States October tour.
"After a year of relentless touring, the wear and tear finally caught up with Gabriela. Her incredibly physical style of play involves banging out complex rhythms on the neck and body of her guitar night after night, putting great stress upon her right hand and arm as well as joints like the wrist and elbow. It is under doctors recommendation that she rest her joints and muscles to avoid further harm and permanent damage. While the duo is incredibly frustrated to have to pull out of dates in cities they were very much looking forward to visiting for the first time, the move was an unavoidable reality that had to be made in order to ensure that Gabriela fully recovers and is able to play at full capacity for many years to come.
"Rodrigo y Gabriela hope to return to the cities affected by the tour dates in the future and are grateful for their fans continued support and understanding."
