White Stripes Cancel Tour Due to Meg's Anxiety

"Just hours after it was revealed that the White Stripes wouldn't be performing in Texas this weekend, the band issued the following statement:

"The White Stripes announced today that they are canceling their forthcoming tour due to health issues. Meg White is suffering from acute anxiety and is unable to travel at this time.

"The White Stripes sincerely apologize to their fans. 'We hate to let people down and are very sorry.'

"Fans can obtain refunds for their tickets at point of purchase."

All of the band's upcoming American shows are off. Dates scheduled in late October and early November in the UK are still scheduled, for now.

UPDATE: Looks like Muse will be performing in the Stripes' slot at ACL and at the aftershow at Stubb's.
