Does anyone know exactly why? Slim Jim has cancelled the tour with the Trio.I have read the stuff on My Space but it does not say why?

Sometimes, this information is meant to be private. Just because we're fans, doesn't mean we have the right to know all the behind the scenes stuff. If there were rumors flying around about a promoter, venue, ticket sales, band member, or any other irresponsible speculation, it could hurt future business dealings. It's never easy to cancel a tour, and I thought Jim handled the announcement with great professionalism. If there were a specific reason for the cancellation that Jim felt could be discussed publicly, I'm sure he would have done so.

I'm sure anyone privy to any "inside information" would have the good sense not to discuss it on an official message board anyway.

There's no need to apologize to anyone - like you said, as fans, it's only natural to be curious, especially if you bought a ticket to a show. There are people who are mad, disappointed, and just plain concerned when something like this happens. Plenty of fans were concerned, for example, when Brian had to cancel his last couple of Christmas shows due to illness.

Sometimes, promoters don't follow through on booking venues, or the money wasn't what was promised, advance ticket sales are down, or there's personal situations with family members or band members. Nobody really benefits from having this knowledge made public. Sometimes, there just aren't answers for the questions here, or at least ones suitable for public consumption. You asked a question, people directed you to the official statements, and it would seem there is your answer.

The good news is, this has no effect whatsoever on the upcoming Stray Cats Euro tour!
