Rock duo The White Stripes have cancelled their fall tour due to illness. A statement on the band’s website cites drummer Meg White’s ‘acute anxiety’ as a cause for the cancellation."Meg White is suffering from acute anxiety and is unable to travel at this time," the duo said in a posting on their Web site. "We hate to let people down and are very sorry."She and Jack White were supposed to hit the road to support their latest album ‘Icky Thump.’ The US tour was slated to start tomorrow in New Mexico, making at a stop at this weekend’s Austin City Limits festival, and run through October ending in Hawaii.No word on if or when the band will reschedule the show, but ticket holders can get refunds.
