Jenny Lewis, who released a batch of mellow rockers last year with her sweetheart, Johnathan Rice, on the duo’s debut, ‘I’m Having Fun Now,’ announced on her Twitter account Monday night that she’s canceling her upcoming West Coast tour due to a family emergency. Her publicists followed up with a formal announcement Tuesday morning, stating that Lewis would be rescheduling the October dates on her solo I Heart Cali tour, many of them already sold out.

Here are the dates affected:

Oct. 15 -- Pappy & Harriet’s, Pioneer Town, Calif.

Oct. 16 -- McCabe’s, Santa Monica

Oct. 17 -- Largo, Los Angeles

Oct. 18 -- El Presidio Chapel, Santa Barbara

Oct. 20 -- Henry Miller Library, Big Sur, Calif.

Oct. 23 -- Bridge School Benefit Concert, Mountain View, Calif.

Oct. 24 -- Swedish American Music Hall, San Francisco

Oct. 25 -- College of the Sequoias Theatre, Visalia, Calif.

For the annual Bridge School Benefit Concert, organized by Neil Young and his wife, Pegi, Lewis is withdrawing from a lineup that includes Santana, Eddie Vedder, Dave Matthews, Beck, Mumford & Sons and Arcade Fire.


No further information is available about the nature of the family emergency, but the announcement stated that Lewis hopes to reschedule dates shortly.
