"Obviously this has been a really tough few days for us," XX singer and bassist Oliver Sim informed the crowd and later dedicated 'VCR' to the missing guitarist. "It's devastating not having Baria here with us, but you all being here has made us feel better ... thank you very much."
Sim added that the band will be discussing their future this weekend after Qureshi's temporary break and nothing is set in stone. "Baria didn't perform last night after feeling exhausted from the XX's recent touring commitments. As a result, the band ... have postponed some European shows which they are hoping to reschedule," according to a statement. The band is tentatively still scheduled to play in Frankfurt, Germany on Nov. 3.
This news comes just after the band's successful run of shows at the 2009 CMJ Music Marathon in New York. Their self-titled debut album was released Oct. 20 in the US.
