BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The New York City indie rock band Interpol has had to cancel shows in Toronto and Montreal because their tour bus was snowbound for two days on the Thruway near Buffalo.
The band, touring to promote their new album, El Pintor, posted messages on Twitter and Facebook announcing Thursday night’s show in Montreal was canceled. They were heading from a show in Columbus, Ohio, to a gig in Toronto Tuesday when their bus became snowbound along with scores of other vehicles stranded by an epic lake-effect storm.
On their Twitter feed, the band posted selfies with vodka and snack bags and playing a guitar. At 4 a.m. Thursday, guitar and vocalist Daniel Kessler tweeted, “Finally just started making a move 50+ hours later. Hoping for some luck today.”
The band has a sold-out show in Boston Friday night.
