Swedish metal act In Flames has decided to cancel their tour of the United Kingdom and the Republic Of Ireland due to personal issues. A statement from the band reads as follows: "We are very sad to announce that the UK and Ireland tour will not happen as planned.

"As you already know, Jesper is currently at an alcohol rehabilitation clinic and is taking some time off to get better. Peter is about to become a dad.

"We obviously knew about Peter becoming a dad and originally planned to have a replacement bassist, but with the recent events surrounding Jesper we simply feel that it is not fair on the fans to see a completely different lineup, which in our eyes is not In Flames.

"Again, sorry to make any UK & Irish fans disappointed and we hope to make it up to you very soon!"
