Which now seems to be confirmed. PEOPLE DO THE MATH! Why are the UK dates not canceled? Fans, people & reporters need to look up the real story? The truth will soon be revealed.

More anti Brock bollocks. 
That was his first post EVER...hmm.  Tells me something right there.  But I'm objective, so I tried to "look up the real story," but the "various websites" link just directs you to the Wikipedia page for Hawkwind.

Sorry, I'm not biting at this point.  I guess I'll have to wait for the truth to be revealed.

Argh!  Ticketmaster.com shows the Boston date has been cancelled, and there is no mention of any US tour dates on www.hawkwind.com.

I guess the entire tour of the US & Canada has been cancelled?

Would have loved to have seen that WoTEoT tour...  Oh well, I did enjoy the Nik Turner show last fall.

i shake my fist at hawkwind and turner

apparently a turner lawsuit is involved in the cancelled tour

was really looking forward to this gig, and this is just bunk

don't announce and schedule things you cannot actually get done

More Hawkwind/Turner hijinks?

Earlier this week, I saw that a list of US tour dates for the fall of 2014 were posted on Nik Turner's Facebook page.  The next day they were gone.  I didn't copy them all down, but I remember that it had Nik & Hedersleben playing the Middle East club in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Sept 12 (same venue where I saw him last October).  No mention of Nik on the Middle East web site - they show some other act playing on that day.

I'm not taking sides in the Hawkwind/Nik battle, but I hope that these dates are real.  Loved hearing classics like "Orgone Accumulator" live last fall.
