This sucks, I was really looking forward to this show and bought tickets for my daughter for Christmas. The Grouplove concert scheduled for April 4th at the Wilma has been cancelled.

Per doctor's orders, the show is cancelled due to health concerns for vocalist and keyboardist Hannah Hooper. Here's a statement from the band:

We deeply regret to announce that Hannah’s vocal chord issue that caused some tour cancellations in December continues to persist. On her doctor’s recommendation, she is unable to do any sustained touring due to the stress of singing almost nightly.  This is absolutely heartbreaking news for us.  We were very much looking forward to seeing you all on our spring tour and visiting cities we had never been to. Our plan now is for Hannah to recover fully so that we can get back out there as soon as possible and tour without interruption.


We apologize to our fans, promoters and support acts.  We promise to do everything we can to make it up to you. 

The good news is that if you paid by credit card online or at The Top Hat, you will be refunded automatically, so watch your bank statement for that. If you purchased physical tickets from Rockin’ Rudy’s or paid by cash at The Top Hat, you can take your tickets to The Top Hat for a refund starting at 11:30 am tomorrow (Thursday, January 19).
