Good news for European fans of strange, erratic live shows. Cat Power will be touring Europe after all, although she may have to do it in a less elaborate fashion than originally planned. Via Pitchfork:

Cat Power’s European fall tour remained up in the air this week, after Chan Marshall posted a note on Twitter and Instagram explaining that health and financial concerns might force her to cancel it. Now, Marshall has posted another Tweet confirming the tour is indeed on (in an apparently less elaborate fashion). She wrote: “EUROPEAN TOUR IS ON. WITHOUT STAGE PRESENTATION. HARD MONEY WASTED. #GOODBYE #GORILLA”

Apparently the original plan was to have a giant, LED backdrop featuring a picture of a gorilla, not an actual gorilla. (An actual gorilla would have been much, much cooler, and only slightly less unpredictable than Chan Marshall.)
