Toots Cancels More Tour Dates 

Add Europe to the list of continents that can officially hate Richmond.

Frederick “Toots” Hibbert had already cancelled his tour dates in North America after a local moron hit him in the head with a vodka bottle while he played a show on Brown’s Island in May. Yesterday Hibbert went ahead and cancelled all future performances, including a six-week European summer tour.

The cancellation is blamed on lingering medical issues, according to a press release put out by the band.

“This unavoidable decision was made by Toots’ medical team as it has been determined that any performances at this time could seriously compromise the artiste’s health and well being,” the release says.

William Connor Lewis is charged with felony assault. Hibbert has lodged a $21 million lawsuit against the 19-year-old.
