King Sunny Ade May 12th canceled.
To all fans of King Sunny Ade and his African Beats:
It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the entire 2010 North American tour for King Sunny Ade and his African Beats.
As some of you may have heard by this time, on March 26th 2010 a tragic car accident took the lives of two members of the African Beats, talking drummer Gabriel Ayanniyi and percussionist Omo Olope, who were en-route to a video shoot for a forthcoming recording. The initial response to this accident was a cancellation of all pending Nigerian shows and a period of mourning. While we were unable to reach the artist himself, staff members of the organization assured us that after a period of mourning the band would continue with their scheduled North American tour.
Over the following two weeks communications with the band and the artist became difficult. When the US Embassy refused to grant visas to replacement members in a timely manner, there was additional confusion about the possible courses of action. As time moved on and we began to see shows cancel one by one, it became clear that the artist and the band had neither recovered from the impact of the tragedy, nor were they able to find consensus on when and how to move forward with normal touring and performance activities.
At this time we feel the only responsible action is to cancel and withdraw from the remaining dates until such a time as King Sunny Ade and his group have sufficiently regrouped and are ready to face the rigors of an International tour again.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to the band and the families of the deceased. On behalf of the artist and his band we extend our apologies to all the presenters and fans who will be disappointed by their inability to perform in North America this year.
Inquiries or condolences to the band directly may be referred to Chief K. Osayemi, firstname.lastname@example.org
With best regards
Andrew C. Frankel

Arizona Highways Tour: Roger Clyne plays Tombstone, Tucson & Bisbee
All roads lead back to Tucson.....and to Flagstaff, Sedona, Prescott, Bisbee and Tombstone as well!
Roger, PH, Nick and Jim have been busy writing and rehearsing songs for their next album. But they're anxious to get out of the house and play some shows! So starting Apr. 22 in Sedona, the boys will take a quick lap around the state for the Arizona Highways Tour.
These special concerts will truly be a unique and fun experience for everyone as RCPM travels to places they rarely get to play. The first three shows in Sedona, Flagstaff and Prescott will be RCPM Acoustic Trio. Hometown boys Roger, PH and Nick will treat fans to all the beloved RCPM and Refreshments classics delivered in a way rarely heard.
Jim then joins up with the band for a series of full-throttle rock shows at venues RCPM doesn't get to play often. Fans will not want to miss these special shows!
As a ''thank you' from RCPM for those who will be following the band from town to town, a special offer is available for the Tombstone, Tucson and Bisbee concerts. The first 100 people to buy a 3-show pass (www.rialtotheatre.com) will receive a free Corzo tequila drink and RCPM merch!
The Prescott show in front of the city courthouse is free. Fans are encouraged to bring canned food items for a corresponding food drive that day.
Roger was born and raised in Arizona, don't ya know, and he and the rest of RCPM are eager to give the home crowd a unique and memorable concert tour and to raise a glass and say, "¡Salúd!"
Tickets for Tombstone, Tucson, Bisbee, and a 3-day pass for those shows are also available at www.rialtotheatre.com, the Rialto box office (M-F, 12-6) and by phone @ 520.740.1000.
