He must be worse off than we thought!
Reps for Sum 41 announced this morning that the band has canceled their spot on the Vans Warped Tour as frontman Deryck Whibley is still in the hospital.
You'll recall that poor Deryck was brutally attacked at a bar in Japan earlier in the week that has left him hospitalized with a slipped disc. The band hopes to get back on the road by the end of August, but they send their heartfelt regrets to their fans who were hoping to catch them on the Warp Tour. Drummer Steve Jocz said:
"[We] are very disappointed that we have to pull off the tour. [But] 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."
Speaking of Deryck, sources say that his condition has not improved since his attack but he is expected to make a full recovery with "the necessary treatment and rest."
Poor guy! We continue to wish him a speedy recovery!
