The band were forced to cancel the remaining two dates of their North American tour, both in Minneapolis. There is no word from the band's Canadian label, Mint Records, on whether or not Collins will be able to make the trip to the U.K. next week to continue the scheduled tour with Neko Case. <a href="http://www.chartattack.com/damn/2005/10/2804.cfm">Read more.</a><p style="font-size:10px;text-align:right;">Technorati Tags: <a href="http://technorati.com/tag/John Collins" rel="tag">John Collins</a>, <a href="http://technorati.com/tag/New Pornographers" rel="tag">New Pornographers</a></p></p>
