SARS, short for "severe acute respiratory syndrome," has affected nearly 2,000 people to date in the Southeast Asian region. Shadow may be the first of many DJs and bands to cut Asian tours short, or cancel them all together.
The note on DJShadow.com states... "Many apologies to those who were looking forward to seeing Shadow in South East Asia, but the tour has been cut short due to the SARS outbreak... The final 2 days have been cancelled, and at this point and time there are no scheduled make-up dates. Again, we do apologize -- but realize this is a bit out of ours (or anyone's hands). Thanks again for your continued support."
