Hoarsest chick in metal – SnoCore cancelled due to Taylor Momsen’s layringitis

Posted by on January 28, 2014

Only two days before it was set to kick off, the SnoCore Tour has been cancelled. The reason (or at least the official reason)? Headliner The Pretty Reckless had to cancel their appearance on the tour due to frontwoman Taylor Momsen having acute laryngitis and walking pneumonia. No headliner means no tour. It’s pretty unprecedented that a tour pull the plug so shortly before it was set to kick off (which would have been on Wednesday in Lincoln, NE). Yet the band, whose Razor & Tie debut is set to be released in March, were arguably the biggest draw on the tour, which was also set to feature Heaven’s Basement, The Letter Black, Crobot and Empire Street.

All tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase, and the band state that they’re “looking forward to seeing everyone later in the year.” It’s not certain whether the band will also be forced to scrap their European shows opening for Fall Out Boy that start in late February, right after SnoCore was to end. Also not certain was what ticket sales were like for the tour, which would have been the first SnoCore tour since 2009.

The Pretty Reckless’ Razor & Tie debut, Going to Hell, will be released on March 18th.
