This new development has forced 5SOS to cancel a number of upcoming appearances while Ashton recovers from surgery. If there's anything you need Ashton, please let us know.
5SOS has canceled not only the upcoming Radio 1 Teen Awards, but will have to miss out on a trip to Japan. The guys explained on their site:
"Hi guys, we have some news for you today. Ashton has come down with a case of appendicitis and had to have an operation. 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 Radio 1 Teen Awards. We will also be postponing next week's trip to Japan (more info to come soon).
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!
Thanks so much for supporting all we do, we love you. Can't wait for us four lads get back on the road (minus one band appendix) and rock out with you all again soon!
Ash, Cal, Mikey & Luke x"
The band's spokesperson said in a statement: "Ashton Irwin from 5 Seconds of Summer was admitted to hospital in Sydney with appendicitis yesterday and has subsequently had an operation to remove his appendix."
We're just glad Ashton's doing okay.
