Scissor SistersThe Scissor Sisters have been forced to cancel a string of upcoming European concert dates due to "funding issues".

The band was set to perform nine shows in Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Italy but the quintet has pulled the plug revealing "it has become impossible to make the tour work financially."

A statement on the band's website released on Monday reads: We're saddened to discover that we are unable to play our scheduled tour dates through Europe. We're genuinely sorry about this frustrating situation. We'll try to make it up to you and return to these beautiful cities soon."

Refunds will be available for the cancelled gigs. The band's December U.K. arena tour is still scheduled to take place.
