Ween Cancel April Tour Dates as Dean Ween Tends to “Mental and Spiritual Well Being”

Ween have canceled the April dates of their 40th anniversary US tour as Michael “Dean Ween” Melchiondo temporarily steps away from performing live to work on his mental health.

“At this moment in time… I need to step away from performing live in order to preserve my mental and spiritual well being, and instead focus on myself and loved ones,” the band’s co-founder and lead guitarist wrote in a social media statement. “I know this will come as a disappointment and with great inconvenience to many people who bought tickets and made travel plans, and for this I sincerely apologize.”

To close out the note, Dean Ween promised to return to the stage with the “enthusiasm, joy, and renewed sense of inspiration that our fans deserve, and that I require of myself when we play live.” Ticketholders will automatically receive a refund from the original point of purchase.
