“It is with deep regret that Sh*tdisco are having to cancel their upcoming tour of the United States of America and Canada. Band member Joel Stone was today rushed into hospital.

“He is being kept there for the next couple of days where specialists will decide what action to take. He has been told he is too unwell to travel for the foreseeable future.

“The band would like to thank everyone who has booked them to play on this tour, and hope that they will get the chance to play the country soon.”
