Unfortunately, 5 seconds of summer has been forced to cancel a few of their upcoming trips because their drummer, Ashton Irwin, is in the hospital! Don’t worry — he will be just fine, the band revealed on their official website! Check out what else they had to say about the sad situation.
Ashton Irwin, 20, is in the hospital with appendicitis — oh no! 5 Seconds Of Summer took to Instagram to update their fans about the bad news. They also wrote to fans on their website explaining that “he’ll need to rest up for the next week or so” and therefore, they will need to cancel their upcoming trips.
Ashton Irwin: 5 Seconds Of Summer Drummer In Hospital — Band Has To Cancel Trips
On their official website, the band posted this for their fans to read, “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 BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards. We will also be postponing next week’s trip to Japan (more info to come soon).”
While we are sad to hear that they will have to cancel their trips, we are so relieved that Ashton is expected to make a full recovery! Fans will be bummed, but we are sure they will understand!
The band added, “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!”
To lighten the mood a bit, the band ended with this statement, “Thanks so much for supporting all we do, we love you. Can’t wait for us four lads to get back on the road (minus one band appendix) and rock out with you all again soon!”
Even though the boys reassured their fans that Ashton will be ok, fans are still concerned — especially about his privacy during this time of recovery.
Please don’t bother going to the hospital to see Ashton he’s in pain. Show all your love and support online and let him rest!
