Statement van Glen Hansard:
"I’m really sorry to report that I won’t be touring abroad for the rest of this year.
Due to personal Family matters, I can’t travel too far from home right now.
I’m needed here, and so I’ve had to make the difficult decision to cancel all touring for the rest of the year. This is an especially difficult decision after waiting so long to get back to work, my band and crew are at the forefront of my mind , along with all the people who’ve supported me / us and our music through the years.
Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.
The Frames anniversary show will go ahead as planned, as it is in Dublin and we’ve waited so long to do it.
Again my sincere apologies."
