New Pornographers Tour Suspended

Disaster struck the New Pornographers as they prepared to take the stage at their sold-out show on Thursday October 20th at the Metro in Chicago. New Pornographers bassist and producer John Collins complained of pain in his abdomen, saying to drummer Kurt Dahle "I think it's my appendix or something". Collins perservered and played the show in various degrees of pain, but declined to party with the band after the show, instead retiring to his hotel room. Soon Collins could stand the pain no longer and called himself an ambulance. He was then rushed to hospital where an appendectomy was performed, including a laprascopic surgery that involves "three holes".

Collins does not have extended medical insurance for the United States. The New Pornographers were in the final stages of wrapping up a sold-out North American tour in support of their new album "Twin Cinema". Also on the tour was Immaculate Machine and Destroyer. The final two shows of the tour, scheduled in Minneapolis, were postponed. John Collins has flown home from Chicago and is currently recovering in Vancouver, reportedly feeling "a bit sore", but otherwise on track for a full if costly recovery. The New Pornographers' next scheduled shows are Nov 1 & 3 in the UK. There is no immediate word on whether Collins will be able to make the trip.
