From Robert Hunter's online Journal-

Here's what was posted in RH's Blog:

"Damned shame Weir had to cancel his tour. Sorry for him, sorry for the fans, sorry for the band and sorry for the venues - in just about that order - but health comes first. He books these hell for leather tours,which might be fine if he " phoned in" his shows, but fact is he gives every ounce of himself on stage, doesn't know any other way. I get eyestrain just reading his schedules! Sorry for the struggling ticket office too - overheard to remark "well looks like it's back to baked beans..." meaning no tickets to sell this season. An inverted pyramid it is, so many paychecks depending on one performer's health. Sound familiar?"
