Default Any News on Real Reason for Cancellations

I know sooner or later the real reason for the cancellations will come out.
Any news yet?

Hopefully it's not ticket sales. To me, with the band members at retirement age with hopefully a pretty good nest egg, they should follow through with the commitments they've made to the fans, even with less than a full house. Outside of an emergency at least show up for the people who've paid through the nose to see their favourite musicians. As good as the reviews have been, and heck, despite being impressed with the performances, I've stuck with sitting it out, simply don't have that much disposable income to fork over. My fandom won't change, but I've faced the reality that I've given them enough money over the last 36 years and they certainly don't need more. There is so much rising talent out there, musicians working their tails off to make it (much like FM in the 70's) that this I've decided will be where I direct my entertainment budget.

Good point.
I've been on the fence for the same reason.
Although the reviews along with many YouTube
clips have been really impressive.
Someone said they haven't seen this much
energy since the Mirage shows.

Might go to a show in July.
Or I might go see The National instead.
Their new album is gorgeous, with drums that
remind me so much of Mick Fleetwood.
And they might be the best American band on the
road right now. Along with Wilco.

Any number of reasons I suppose can cause a cancellation. Might not have anything to do with ticket sales.
