Apparently whichever band members illness caused the cancellation of their Long and Short of it tour is good as new, as the Decemberists will be playing four shows in January. From their website:
We are pleased to announce that the Decemberists will be playing four shows in the Northwest next month - January 22 and 23 at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland and January 30 and 31 at the Moore Theatre in Seattle. We know this may be a small consolation to those of you outside of Portland and Seattle that had tickets to the fall tour, but the band has rested up, and was excited to play some dates close to home. These shows will be neither Longs nor Shorts, just good ol' fashioned Decemberists shows.Good news indeed. Go get those tickets Seattle and Portland peeps.
A limited number of tickets are available Friday, December 14 at NOON Pacific time at The Decemberists' ticketing site. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning the following Friday. Check venue websites for complete information.
