5 Seconds of Summer's Ashton Irwin is in the hospital with appendicitis, according to a statment on the band's website. The drummer had an operation, and while he is recooperating, 5SOS is canceling their trips to the U.K. and Japan.
Irwin is reportedly doing "great," but this means the foursome will not be attending BBC's Radio 1 Teen Awards on Sunday.
Read the full statement below:
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… Unfortunately this means that we’ll no longer be able to fly back to the UK this weekend for the Radio 1 Teen Awards. We will also be postponing next week’s trip to Japan (more info to come soon).
We are so sorry to everyone that had planned on seeing us. We were so excited to come see you all and we never want to make any of you sad… We hope you understand!
Thanks so much for supporting all we do, we love you. Can’t wait for us four lads get back on the road (minus one band appendix) and rock out with you all again soon!
Get better, Ash!
