'Anxious' Meg cancels Stripes tour

The White Stripes have been forced to cancel their upcoming US and UK tours, with their spokesperson claiming that Meg White is suffering from 'acute anxiety'. Meg's health problems also mean that the band will not be performing at the forthcoming Austin City Music Festival, and for the foreseeable future, with both Stripes releasing an apologetic statement to fans, saying "We hate to let people down and are very sorry".
