Here’s the band’s statement:

Most of DEVO’s upcoming November tour dates, including Solana Beach’s Belly Up, Los Angeles’ Club Nokia, and San Francisco’s Warfield Theater, will be rescheduled for next spring and the public will be informed once new dates have been confirmed.

The Gibson Digital Guitar – an innovative update of the traditional electric guitar – has been killed off, according to a report from FutureMusic:
Gibson has pulled the plug, or should we say, Ethernet cable, on their groundbreaking Digital Guitar.
Unfortunately the steep price tag and lack of enthusiasm from the guitar crowd put the final nail in the coffin. Some of the technology utilized in developing the guitar will make its way into other Gibson products in the future.
