Beirut has canceled all upcoming tour dates for 2019 due to Zach Condon’s ongoing health issues.
Condon was recently diagnosed with laryngitis. He has been advised by his doctors to pull out of his remaining shows so that he can recover. The band recently pulled out of End Of The Road Festival and now they have canceled all remaining U.S. and North America shows.
“Due to Zach receiving a diagnosis of acute laryngitis earlier this Summer and it being a reoccurring issue going into the Fall, the rest of the performances for the band this year are canceled,” the band wrote on Twitter. “Zach has been advised not to sing or tour. Band and crew are very sorry to share that news as we all looked very much forward to each of these shows and to seeing everyone.”
The band was due to play in Stockholm at the end of the month followed by a string of European tour dates. They were then scheduled to head over to the U.S. for another chunk of dates in November.
No rescheduled dates have been confirmed but it is assumed that the band will resume their tour in 2020 when Condon has recovered.
