Conor Oberst Hospitalized, Desaparecidos Cancel Tour

Desparecidos has been on tour for the past few months in support of their new album, Payola, their first in 13 years, but have been forced to cancel the rest of their tour dates after Conor Oberst was hospitalized for a bad case of “laryngitis, anxiety, and exhaustion,” according to a press release. It started with the cancellation of a show in Jacksonville last night, but it is now all of their dates being cancelled, including sets at The Fest and Fun Fun Fun Fest. Here’s a statement from their label, Epitaph:
