Ashton Irwin Hospitalized, 5 Seconds of Summer Cancel Trips
Get well soon, Ashton! The 5 Seconds of Summer drummer has been hospitalized for appendicitis, the band revealed on Twitter today (Oct. 15):
Sadly, the band has not only canceled their trip to the UK this weekend, but it also means that they will be postponing their planned trip to Japan as well:
Fortuantely, 5SOS revealed more information about Ashton's condition on their official website -- and it looks like he'll be just fine.
"Ashton has come down with a case of appendicitis and had to have an operation," the guys wrote. "He’s doing great and will be back up & running in no time, but he’ll need to rest up for the next week or so."
"Unfortunately this means that we’ll no longer be able to fly back to the UK this weekend for the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards. We will also be postponing next week’s trip to Japan (more info to come soon)," they continued. "We are so sorry to everyone that had planned on seeing us. We were so excited to come see you all and we never want to make any of you sad… We hope you understand!"
As bummed as the 5SOS Fam may be, we know that everyone is putting Ashton's health (and recovery from his appendectomy) first and foremost. Just minutes after the band's initial tweet, the fandom already had #GetWellSoonAshton trending on Twitter.
And of course, the guys couldn't sign off without just a little humor.
"Thanks so much for supporting all we do, we love you," they added. "Can’t wait for us four lads to get back on the road (minus one band appendix) and rock out with you all again soon!"
Right now, we're keeping Ashton in our thoughts and hope that he's on the mend ASAP!
