McFly have had to cancel their Anthology Tour after Harry Judd put his back out.
Harry Judd is “absolutely gutted” after the herniation of his C6/7 disc and has been signed off performing by doctors until September.
“I’m absolutely gutted that we’ve had to postpone the tour. 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 going to do all the rehab possible to get myself ready to do the most epic shows we’ve ever put on!”
His band mate Tom Fletcher joked that the postponement was “completely Harry’s fault” and pointed fans to Harry’s Twitter account in order to lodge a complaint.
“Sorry we’ve had to move the tour. Completely Harry’s fault. All complaints to be sent to @mcflyharry. On a more positive note, it gives Danny more time to learn the words to our songs. See you all in September.”

Last month McFly announced a 2016 UK tour, playing up close and personal at historic rock venues across London, Glasgow, Birmingham and Manchester. The Anthology Tour is a unique concept; the band will play three nights in each city, with each concert featuring a different set list from a different McFly album, alongside some of the band’s biggest hits.
The first night in each city will feature songs from ‘Room on The Third Floor’, the second night songs from ‘Wonderland’ and ‘Motion In The Ocean’, whilst the third night will feature songs from ‘Radio:ACTIVE’ and ‘Above The Noise’.
These extra special shows, now scheduled for September, are a unique opportunity to see McFly perform almost all of their amazing back catalogue, from album tracks to bonafide smash hits, ensuring every fan will hear at least one of their favourite Mcfly songs.
