Sum 41 have announced that they will have to cancel their remaining appearances on Warped Tour. Frontman Deryck Whibley was attacked in Japan last Thursday, re-aggravating a slipped disk in his spine which he originally sustained in 2007. According to the band, Whibley’s condition “has not improved.”
Drummer Steve Jocz said,
Being a part of Warped Tour this summer meant a lot to us. We haven’t toured in two years and the bands, the crowds and the entire Warped Tour crew have been amazing to us. We were excited to be back in front of our fans and are very disappointed that we have to pull off the tour. We know that it would be more frustrating for the fans if we can’t give it our all. Deryck is doing everything he can to get himself better and we’re there for him.
