Another reason to shout: Tears for Fears cancels summer tour, Spokane show

Posted By on Mon, May 23, 2016 at 10:28 AM


After a seemingly nonstop flow of good news when it comes to the summer concert season, along comes word that Tears for Fears won't be playing in Spokane after all. 

It's nothing personal — the band postponed its entire summer tour, posting this statement to their website

Tears for Fears’ Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith regrettably announce today that they have to postpone their summer run of dates in the US to include theatres and festivals, due to family illness.

The band says in a joint statement: “It’s with great disappointment that we have to postpone our US summer dates due to unforeseen and unhappy circumstances. We thank our fans for their understanding and hope to get back on the road soon."
The INB Performing Arts Center, where the band was to play, has an announcement on its website that any tickets bought via phone or online will be refunded automatically. If you bought your tickets in person, head to the TicketsWest office at Spokane Arena for a refund. 


We'll let you know if and when the band reschedules a Spokane show.
