Calling all McFly fans far and wide: some fairly terrible news has just landed in our inbox for anyone counting down the days until the Anthology tour. The band have announced that they've been forced to postpone their comeback gig dates - but only by a couple of months.
Poor ol' Harry Judd has landed himself an acute disc herniation at C6/7 level (no idea what that means but it sounds real bad), meaning that he can't perform until he's had the relevant treatment and some time to recover. McFly's Anthology tour will now be kicking off in September.
Speaking about the whole disastrous shebang, Harry said in a statement: "I'm absolutely gutted that we've had to postpone the tour. I've honestly tried everything to make it work, but I'd never want to do a tour where I wouldn't be able to give you guys the 110% performance you deserve every night.
"I'm going to do all the rehab possible to get myself ready to do the most epic shows we've ever put on!"
That's alright, Hazza. We'll forgive you, providing you're willing to do all gigs with no clothes on to make up for it. Deal? Deal.
Landing Harry right in it, Tom took to Twitter to say: "Sorry we've had to move the tour. Completely Harry's fault. All complaints to be sent to @mcflyharry. On a more positive note, it gives Danny more time to learn the words to our songs. See you all in September."
