Low have cancelled their upcoming tour dates in Europea and the UK, citing Mimi Parker’s ongoing cancer treatment. “As some of you know, Mimi has been fighting cancer,” the band wrote on social media. “Recent developments and changes in treatment have made extensive travel impossible at this time. Our hope is that she will respond to new treatments and be able to play the shows we have scheduled for the fall, including the Water Is Life festival in Duluth on September 4.”
They added: “We are very sorry for the inconvenience of ticket shuffling and travel expenses/changes. We welcome your positive hopes/prayers as we hope and pray for you all.”
Parker was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in late 2020. She first spoke publicly about her diagnosis on the Sheroes Radio podcast in January. The band have played a number of shows this year in support of their latest album, HEY WHAT, including a stop at Primavera Sound 2022. They’re set to open for Death Cab for Cutie on a handful of their 2022 tour dates.
