Those of you hoping to catch Joey Jordison and Slipknot bringing the 'sickness' at the Reading and Leeds festivals this weekend will be disappointed to learn that the band have been forced to cancel their UK and European after Joey Jordison broke his ankle. The band have issued a statement that reads as follows:
To Our Fans: "It is with huge regret and disappointment that we have been forced to cancel our imminent European festival appearances at Leeds, Reading, 2 Days a Week, Area 4, as well as exclusive performances for MTV Europe and Virgin TV. The other night, Joey Jordison broke his ankle and doctors have advised Joey to stay off his leg for 4-6 weeks to prevent further injury or permanent and more serious damage.
We know you will be hugely disappointed and so are we. Cancelling shows is never an easy decision and we apologize to all our fans, friends and family for not being there to throw down with you. We will be back in Europe this November and can't wait to see you all then.
