Charlatans UK tour postponed

For those of you not in the know: Yes, the Britpop band is still around. They've never stopped and just released a solid new studio album, "Who We Touch." Here's info on the tour situation, which included shows next week in Costa Mesa and L.A.

The Charlatans' US tour has been postponed, following the collapse of drummer Jon Brookes during a gig at Philadelphia’s Johnny Brenda’s club on Wednesday night.

Brookes is being flown back to England for further treatment, although is currently in a comfortable condition, and the band promise to keep everyone informed as and when the situation develops. The Charlatans are very upset at not being able to continue the tour but hope to reschedule the dates as soon as possible.

Possible brain tumour - so sad. His drumming on One To Another is phenomenal. Get well soon Jon Brookes.

That is very disheartening news.
Hope Jon recovers. I've always thought he was one of the better rock drummers to emerge from the Manchester "baggy"/Britpop scene.
