We regret to inform you that Low have cancelled their UK/​Europe tour, including their performance at Rotondes. Ticketholders will be contacted personally. Please read the statement from the band below.

Friends, thank you for your kind words, thoughts, and gifts recently for Mim. Words cannot describe the sublime light that is in every message and gesture. We were hoping she would be healthy enough to do the UK/​Europe tour we had planned for November, but it is clear that we should stay home and continue with treatment and care as she is still struggling with ovarian cancer. There have been difficult days but your love has sustained us and will continue to lift us through this time. Our hearts go out immediately to others in similar situations but who don’t have as many people sending such love and healing wishes. Find someone who is alone who needs a chat and give them your time and love. With tears, we say thank you and hope to see you soon.”

Thirty years into their careers, Minnesota indie rock band Low released their 13th album Hey What in September 2021, to critical acclaim. With the Grammy-nominated record the band focus on their craft, stay out of the fray, and hold fast their faith to find new ways to express the discord and delight of being alive, to turn the duality of existence into hymns we can share.

Each track on Hey What is turbocharged by the vivid textures that surround them. The ineffable, familiar harmonies of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker break through the chaos like a life raft. Layers of distorted sound accrete with each new verse – building, breaking, colossal then restrained, a solemn vow only whispered.
