Exene Cervenka calls off tour
Exene Cervenka has canceled the remaining shows on her solo tour itinerary, which runs through April 18, due to health concerns.
According to a press release issued by her label, Bloodshot Records, opening act Kevin Seconds will still be playing the remaining dates on the tour, "and Exene encourages folks to come out and see her friend."
Cervenka has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, though it's not clear that the effects of the disease were the reason for the cancellations.
"I'm better than I should be doing," she told Spinner last month. "It's a weird disease. I've been doing 16 years of neurology. One doctor in California diagnosed me, then did a bunch of tests and now is not sure. Regardless, I don't have the money for medication, and I don't have insurance, so I can't act like I'm sick. I have to pretend that I'm not. I just ignore it. I do. It comes and goes. You're fine, and then all of a sudden it hits."
Cervenka, best known as a member of Los Angeles punk legends X, was touring behind her new solo release, "The Excitement of Maybe."
