Sudden Infant Japan/Taiwan Tour Cancelled

Sudden Infant (aka Joke Lanz) has cancelled a series of dates in Japan and Taiwan in the wake of the Japan earthquake. Lanz said on his blog: “After thoughtful consideration and consultation with my close friends in Japan and the Swiss and German embassies, I decided to cancel the whole Sudden Infant/Pain Infant tour including the one off show in Taipei and to postpone it for an indefinite period of time...I think with due respect for the victims and their relatives it is not appropriate to tour Japan right now in its worst crisis since 65 years."
