Rodrigo y Gabriela Cancel September Tour Dates

Awesome Mexican folk-metal group Rodrigo y Gabriela have had to cancel the rest of their North American tour (which was going to hit the Grove of Anaheim Sept. 13) due to the latter's exhaustion. They hope to return to the road in October.

You can read Rex Reason's feature in this week's OC Weekly here and my review of their live set at Gibson Amphitheatre earlier this year here.

Full press release after the jump.

Meanwhile, here's a video of them performing a song you thought you never needed to hear again (but you were wrong).

Rodrigo y Gabriela are unable to make final leg of US September tour. Gabriela is suffering from exhaustion after a hectic summer/fall tour schedule and is left with no choice but to cancel the remaining shows in September. Advice from Doctors is to take a few weeks off to relax so she can build up her strength.

Gabriela's high energy performances means that she has to be in top physical health to perform to the levels people expect and that she enjoys.

Gabriela will be taking a month of to get back in shape for Rodrigo y Gabriela's October tour.

The affected gigs are:

Sept 7 The Marquee, Phoenix, AZ 8 Rialto, Tucson, AZ 12 Canes, San Diego, CA 13 The Grove, Annaheim, CA 15 Antones, Austin, TX 16 Austin City Limits, Austin, TX

"I am gutted that I have to take a break from touring. I was really looking forward to these dates but if it means we can do what we've got planned for the rest of the year then I need to take the time off.

I want to apologize to our fans, and I hope that everyone understands. We will be back on the road next month." Gabriela.
