has decided to cancel some gigs after member got hospitalized with appendicitis. In a statement posted on their official website on Wednesay, October 15, the band said the drummer underwent surgery, but he's fine now. However, they still have to axe their scheduled performances in the U.K. and Japan.
"Hi guys, we have some news for you today. Ashton has come down with a case of appendicitis and had to have an operation. He's doing great and will be back up & running in no time, but he'll need to rest up for the next week or so," the Australian boys wrote. "Unfortunately this means that we'll no longer be able to fly back to the U.K. this weekend for the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards. We will also be postponing next week's trip to Japan."
