Two Door Cinema Club has canceled its upcoming tour of Europe. The Northern Irish band says it has had to cancel the concerts because of “the incurable autoimmune disease” that bassist Kevin Baird suffers from. The group would perform in Amsterdam on 1 and 2 October.

In a message on social media, the 33-year-old bassist of the well-known indie rock band explained the decision on Thursday evening. He writes, among other things, that last summer’s performances have been too heavy for him.

In consultation with his doctors, he has decided to drop the tour and undergo surgery. In doing so, an affected organ will be removed so that the disease will be more manageable, Baird writes.

Whether and when he could perform again, the bassist cannot say yet. “The medical advice now is that we have to wait and see how the recovery goes after my surgery.”

At the end of the message, Baird thanks his bandmates Alex Trimble and Sam Halliday and his fans for their support. “Thank you all for being the best fans in the world”.

It is not the first time that the band has had to cancel concerts because of a sick band member. For example, singer Trimble ended up in a hospital with exhaustion in 2014 and the Irish trio had to stop playing abruptly.

Two by Cinema Club was founded in 2007 and has since released five studio albums. The album Keep On Smiling appeared last week.
