Singer Willis Earl Beal's European tour has been cancelled under mysterious circumstances. The trek was set to kick off next month (14) in London, but the dates have now been axed. Beal explains he does not know why the tour was called off, but insists he was not behind the decision. In a post on Tumblr.com, he writes, "Greetings. This is Willis Earl Beal with a most unfortunate update. My upcoming European tour has been cancelled. I want to thank the folks who bought tickets and assure them that this was not my decision. "At this point, the reason that I'm not touring is as mysterious to me as it is to you. Hell, if it were up to me, I'd go down there and sing a capella while standing on a milk crate on the sidewalk. Wouldn't be the first time. I even told them this, but, to no avail." Beal has released a new album, A Place That Doesn't Exist, which fans can download for free as a "peace offering".
