The Smith Street Band have been forced to cancel their New Zealand tour this week following an injury to one of the band members.
The band released a statement which can be read below.
Hello to our friends across the ditch!
We are very sorry to announce that we're going to have to cancel this weekends New Zealand shows due to my leg injury! It's very swollen and due to the amount of internal bleeding the doctor has said I can't fly because it would risk blood clots and other serious complications!
We're very sorry to cancel and wouldn't be doing it if there was any other way! The shows are already being rescheduled for later in the year!
**Note - Carb On Carb will still play Great Job in Palmerston North, any extra news on shows will be posted to the tour event
