Tokyo will not rock this spring. A new festival set in Japan that would have featured Blur and My Bloody Valentine has been cancelled. Tokyo Rocks was all set to kick off next month when organizers abruptly pulled the cord. Also on the bill was Primal Scream, Carl Barat and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
The official Tokyo Rocks website posted a cancellation message, but seeing as how I can’t read Japanese and it’s in Google translate unfriendly image form, I’m just going to take NME’s word on it.
