Just four days ahead of its first date, Bob Weir and Ratdog have announced the cancelation of the entire summer and fall tour. The abrupt announcement through the furthur Facebook page offered no explanation for the plug getting pulled other than to say 'Circumstances have necessitated', and 'We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.' The wave of canceled concerts includes a scheduled appearance at the Peach Music Festival and, apparently, the group's visit to Jamaica, scheduled for January of next year. Health issues have dogged Weir in recent months. He disappeared from public view for several weeks in the spring of 2013 after collapsing on stage during a Furthur concert at the Capitol Theater in Portchester, NY (story) and just last month was a no-show for a Ratdog concert in Las Vegas that went on without him after refunds were offered for those wanting them.
