According to a statement from the band, Desaparecidos must cancel the rest of their U.S. tour due to Conor Oberst falling sick at Desaparecidos' Jacksonville date. This includes the concert scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 29, at the Social. All tickets will be refunded. Here's the statement: 

"Desaparecidos has been forced to cancel the remainder of their US tour dates. Conor Oberst fell ill while on tour in Jacksonville, Florida and was briefly hospitalized due to laryngitis, anxiety, and exhaustion. In consultation with his doctors, the band has reluctantly agreed to cancel all scheduled live dates. Conor will be heading home to Omaha to recuperate. We wish him a speedy recovery.
