UB40 Cancel Tour Due To Injury
Brown has been diagnosed with an RSI, also known as a repetitive strain injury, to his wrists which caused an inflammation of the muscle or nerves from repetitive motion.
The band made the announcement on their website last Friday and informed fans that they would no longer be playing following dates, beginning tomorrow at the Sky Dome Arena in Coventry, and the Planet Ice Arenas in Peterborough (Monday, 9/16), Ryde, (Next Wed 9/18) and Cardiff (next Friday 9/20).
The statement from the group's management reads, "UB40 are deeply sorry for the inconvenience this will cause their fans. The band had been looking forward to these shows all summer but, as his treatment continues, Jimmy has been advised not to play for the foreseeable future."
The band was launching the tour in support of their brand new album "Getting Over The Storm". Visit the band's official site here.
