McFly have announced that their Anthology Tour, due to take place in June, has been postponed until September.
The news comes as drummer Harry Judd has an acute disc herniation at C6/7 level and is therefore unable to perform as he needs treatment and time to rest.
Harry said: “I’m absolutely gutted to say that we’ve had to postpone the tour as I’ve herniated a disc in my neck. I’ve honestly tried everything to make it work but I’d never want to do a tour where I wouldn’t be able to give you guys the 110% performance you deserve every night. I’m gunna do all the rehab possible to get myself ready to do the most epic shows we’ve ever put on!”

I'm absolutely gutted to say that we've had to postpone the tour as I've herniated a disc in my neck. I've honestly tried everything to make it work but I'd never want to do a tour where I wouldn't be able to give you guys the 110% performance you deserve every night. I'm gunna do all the rehab possible to get myself ready to do the most epic shows we've ever put on! Love Harry, Barry, The Triple D, The not quite as good half of Pudd or whatever it is you wanna call me x #mcfly #itsnotalwayseasy
Harry’s fellow band mate Tom Fletcher added: “Sorry we’ve had to move the tour. Completely Harry’s fault. All complaints to be sent to Harry. On a more positive note, it gives Danny more time to learn the words to our songs. See you all in September.”
