Subject: Fish 99 -The Tale of the Gutted Fish and the Stolen Cherries!!
Dear Fishheads, Freaks, Fans and the Company,
I really do not want to go into detail here as the realities of a situation are still sinking in!
I have made the decision to cancel the upcoming North American tour after consultation with close friends and associates all of whom have a keen awareness of the current situation.
I deeply regret to say that my position has been compromised and the gamble was quickly becoming strong odds against a tour that was not only lose me a substantial amount of money but also in the long term was going to have no benefit to my career whatsoever.
This is a postponement rather than a cancellation and I am in the position of regrouping a number of elements in order to proceed with a tour in late Fall.
Please don't buy any tickets for the June/July/August shows as they are definitely off.
I am searching for a cunning plan at the moment and head for Switzerland tomorrow!
I'll fill you in on all the subterfuge next week when it'll be possible to respond to this event in a reasoned and controlled manner!
I sincerely apologise to anyone who has already confirmed travel plans for the tour but as you'll discover next week I could not seriously consider such a venture in the circumstances.
lots of love
an extremely pissed off
