“Andrew McMahon is suffering from significant mental exhaustion and physical fatigue. After his cancer recovery, he jumped right back into touring and didn’t stop for 14 months.”

The statement emphasized the singer has not relapsed, but simply needs some time to recharge.

“The extensive travel has taken a toll on his mind and body – enough so that management believers that it is in his, and his fans’, best interest for him to be home so that he can regain his strength.

“Andrew is very disappointed and wishes to sincerely apologize to the fans, the schools, the promoters and everyone involved. We hope to make up the dates as early as February 2008 if the schools and promoters will have us.”
