Porcupine Tree vocalist and guitarist Steven Wilson has announced that he will be canceling several of his forthcoming tour dates with his Blackfield side project. The cancellation, which currently includes four of the band's upcoming stops, is due to the passing of Steven Wilson's father. Wilson posted a short statement online which reads:

"Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago and Vancouver are all also definitely cancelled. My apologies to all those who bought tickets or made travel arrangements to come to these concerts, I hate doing this, but the circumstances are exceptional. As soon as I know when the tour can resume I will let you know."

All of us at Metalunderground.com offer our condolences to the Wilson family.

Been there done that. No way in hell i'd play a show in that state of mind. Steven needs time to get his emotions straight and I forsee another epic album from this tragedy.

My sincere condolences to you Steven.
It certainly is challenging coming
to terms of losing a loved one.
I admire your strength and integrity as person which I think will support you through this difficult time.
All good things to you Steven.
