Sum 41 Cancel UK tour Dates

Bad news for UK-based pop punkers! Sum 41 have pulled out of a joint tour of the UK with New Found Glory because of frontman Deryck Whibley's bad back. Whibley was married to Avril Lavigne for a minute.
Sum 41 will be replaced by The Blackout on the 11 gigs, which were to have been co-headline dates.
In a statement, Whibley says, "I feel really terrible about letting down the fans. I injured my back and the doctors are saying that I could be in a wheelchair. So, as much as I wanted to be able to do it, I've got to look at reality, and for the first time I've got to listen to somebody else and not just myself. We're all really upset about this; we've had such a great relationship with our UK fans. We were really looking forward to this tour."
