Go-Go’s cancel farewell tour after Wiedlin injury

Gogos The Go-Go’s have canceled their “Happily Ever After” farewell tour as the result of a hiking injury sustained by singer-guitarist Jane Wiedlin two weeks ago. The bouncy ’80s femme pop-punk quintet had planned to call it a day after the 12-date jaunt, which was scheduled to kick off July 7 at a Lilith tour date in San Diego and conclude July 27 in guitarist Kathy Valentine’s hometown of Austin, Texas.

On her official Facebook page, Wiedlin — who announced the tour cancellation via Twitter late Wednesday night — said she is scheduled for knee replacement surgery on June 16. It may take a year for her to recover from the procedure.
