Rejects Cancel Shows After Ritter's Mysterious Injury

The ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS have scrapped a set of shows with rockers BLINK-182 after lead singer TYSON RITTER was left wheelchair-bound with a mystery injury.
Ritter performed from a wheelchair with his leg in a brace last week (begs21Sep09) during a show in Tampa, Florida, amid reports suggesting the singer had undergone knee surgery to remove a tumour. But details of his condition have not been officially released.
The rocker has now confirmed he is in need of time off and hopes to make a full recovery by next month (Nov09).
A post on the band's website reads: "The All-American Rejects are sorry to announce the cancellation of three upcoming show dates - two dates in support of Blink-182 and one headlining date in Atlantic City. Lead Singer Tyson Ritter sustained an injury while on tour and is taking necessary precautions for a speedy recovery."
The band hopes to return to the stage when they kick-off a co-headlining tour with Taking Back Sunday on 3 November (09) in Michigan.
