British rockers Coldplay have cancelled their previously postponed tour of South America.
The band announced plans to play a number of shows, starting in Chile on Feb. 12, but they postponed the tour shortly after scheduling the dates late last year. They had hoped to play the gigs later in 2013, but the musicians have now confirmed they are unable to reschedule.
"Dear friends in Latin America, We're sad to say that, due to circumstances beyond our control, we're unable to reschedule the postponed Mylo Xyloto tour dates in 2013," said a message posted on the band's website. "For this we're very sorry. It may seem small consolation now but we'll definitely have your corner of the world at the front of our minds when the time comes to do it all again. Thank you for your incredible patience and support."
