The Hold Steady was set to kick off their UK tour with the Sept 29th gig at the Oxford Academy, but have cancelled all dates for the time being. No official reason was given as to why they had to cancel, although rumor has it that a band member’s illness has something to do with it.

The Hold Steady is currently touring in support of their newly released album Stay Positive. British fans might just have to do that, as they hope for some re-scheduled dates.
