Free Energy Tour With Rakes Canceled, New Shows Scheduled

Following last week's announcement that The Rakes have broken up, Free Energy have issued a statement regarding their upcoming tour dates. Philadelphia's Free Energy were scheduled to tour with The Rakes.

Hey People,

We are sad to announce that the tour that Free Energy had planned on starting with the Rakes next week has been cancelled. The simple reason is that the Rakes broke up. We're bummed that we won't be able to come out West in November, but a new country-wide tour is in the works for the early part of the new year, so it won't be long. Luckily, we have been able to hold on to the Boston date (which will now be a Free Energy show) and keep in the dates from Dallas-Philly in late November. There is a new NYC date announced as well below.

To sum it up:

The following dates (with the Rakes) have been cancelled:

  • 10/31: Los Angeles, CA @ The Roxy*
  • 11/01: San Francisco, CA @ Slims*
  • 11/03: Salt Lake City, UT @ The Urban Lounge*
