In Flames Cancel Tour Dates Over Missing Members

Swedish rockers IN FLAMES have cancelled their upcoming U.K. tour after losing two of their members.
Guitarist Jesper Stromblad is currently battling alcohol addiction at a clinic in his homeland, and now bassist Peter Iwers has been forced to step out of the band as he prepares to become a dad.
Stromblad was replaced by Niclas Engelin for dates in South America, Australia and Japan, but the band has decided there's no way they can continue with two temporary members.
The remaining musicians have decided to scrap upcoming dates in Britain and Ireland in April (09).
A statement released to Blabbermouth.net reads, "We are very sad to announce that the U.K. and Ireland tour will not happen as planned. Jesper is currently at an alcohol rehabilitation clinic and 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 line-up, which, in our eyes, is not In Flames."
