Killing Joke cancels 2016 U.S. tour

Another show bites the dust.

A tour announcement that stirred up quite a buzz because it included a stop at Orpheum in Ybor City — that of UK's prestigious post-punk vets Killing Joke — is officially cancelled, as is all of the band's U.S. tour.

From Killing Joke's Facebook page:

Dear Gatherers and friends. It is with great sadness and regret that due to some health issues for one of the band we will not be able to embark on our 2016 U.S. Tour. This has come as a shock to us all, please give us the time to work this out and we hope to return to touring as soon as possible. The Soft Moon are continuing with many of the scheduled dates so please check local listings and the band's website for further information:

Big fat frownie face.
