Sonic Youth has been rescheduled for January 4th
Sonic Youth regretfully announce that guitarist Lee Ranaldo has fractured his left wrist -- requiring the band to reschedule portions of their upcoming west coast tour to the following new dates:
Mon Jan 04 - Tucson, AZ - Rialto Theatre
Tue Jan 05 - Phoenix, AZ - Marquee Theater
Thu Jan 07 - San Diego...
We are bummed we have to wait longer to see Sonic Youth, but I think we can muster the patience. Of course, all tickets sold for the original October 2nd date will still be valid for the new January 4th date. If you have any questions or are for some reason unable to attend the new date, please call our box office M-F 12-6pm at 520.740.1000 and we can assist you.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but be as thankful as we are that the headline of this page says "rescheduled" and not "canceled"!
