Political punk band Fugazi has postponed most of its December tour
because of a family medical emergency, an employee at the band's Dischord
Records label said Thursday (Dec. 9). While the nature of the problem was
not disclosed, Dischord said the bandmembers are fine. The group, which
launched the tour Dec. 2 in Providence, R.I., hopes to make up shows
slated for Dec. 816 in North Carolina, Georgia and Florida sometime
next year, the employee said. Fugazi have not decided whether to play
shows scheduled for Dec. 1720 in Georgia and Tennessee.
