hello friends.

as you may know, my health has been up and down for the last few years. i seem to be in a delicate stage again, and my doctors (i have 3!) suggested that i cut down on travel. that said, i am feeling really well. rather than cancel the whole tour, i have opted to bow out of my 3 uk shows in may. this means that after new york i can go home and rest for a week before heading over to germany. i am really sorry to disappoint any folks in england and wales, but truly this feels like the right decision. peace of mind and rest of body. i promise to make it up to you on the next tour. 6 hour shows! burlesque dancers! an elephant!*

thanks for your understanding. and for you canadians, this is why i haven’t been able to tour canada with This Riot Life yet either. this and the darned opera that takes up all my head. but i will travel again. my psyche would not permit a quiet loner life.

and don’t worry. x v

*promises of elephants are not binding.

    Get well soon, dear Veda.

    I can imagine that creating so much fabulousness takes up a lot of energy. Hope you get well real soon, Veda.

    Well Veda, Speaking on behalf of the UK [which I have no right at all to do :-)] I say get well and/or stay well and we will look forward to another time – & if you can’t bring elephants bring dancing doctors.

    Just a quick reminder to everyone that today Veda will be singing some neat Neil Young covers on CBC Radio 2, with the CBC Orchestra.

    Always wishing Veda the best,

    Oh, all the best for you Veda, hope you are well soon.
    So, I can still see you in Vienna then?
    Lucky me!

    In a more enlightened age, an age of Empire and dark satanic mills, Britain could quite legitimately have declared war on Canada for this. Now, the United Nations forbids such reasoned reaction.

    Well, THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT, Mr Kofi bloody Annan.

    It would probably be against my civil rights to forbid me my own personal protest, so I’m off. To buy a Westlife CD.

    A whole country spurned. It just better be a pretty bloody big elephant.

    Well, here’s a thing: visited the site for the first time in a while and have only today found out that UK shows were even scheduled (Cardiff and Exeter? How come they’re the lucky ones?) And a full band, no less!! I’d never be able to get out to Cardiff or Exeter, but how great would that have been?
    Anyway, hope you feel better, Veda. This riot life is still my favourite album of the year!
