Thanks to a new IRS rule that would claim a shocking 30 percent of their show profits, Echo & The Bunnymen have canceled their upcoming U.S. tour, according to a statement from the band's publicist. The tour was set to begin Nov. 15 in Atlanta.

Expect to see a siren on The Drudge Report soon saying something to the effect of "You see what happens in Obama's America, liberals? EVEN FOREIGNERS ARE OVERTAXED." The doomed itinerary is below.

Nov. 15, Atlanta, Masquerade
Nov. 17, Washington D.C., The Black Cat
Nov. 18, State College, Penn., The State Theatre
Nov. 20, Glenside Penn., Kewsick Theatre
