As previously reported, The Jesus and Mary Chain hit the U.S. this week for their first U.S. shows in over four years. However, as Slicing Up Eyeballs points out, visa problems have forced the band to reschedule two of their four upcoming dates. Originally set for Saturday night, JMC’s performance at Texas’ 35 Denton Festival will now take place Wednesday, March 14th, in the form of a free show at the North Texas State Fairgrounds (click here for more details). Consequently, their March 12th show in New Orleans has been rescheduled for September 5th. Check out the updated schedule below.
The appearances will support the band’s previously announced in-depth series of reissues. Full details on each of the six reissues are currently available on the band’s official site.
