Why - Why? Cancel U.s. Tour

Indie hip-hop group Why? have cancelled their U.S. tour dates after frontman Jonathan 'Yoni' Wolf broke his hand.
The band was forced to call off a string of shows across the country, including stops in New York, Georgia, Texas and California, after Wolf underwent surgery for a severe injury.
Yoni has shown off his cast-bound hand in a video uploaded to YouTube.com, while his bandmate brother Josiah Wolf apologises to fans for the cancellation.
Josiah explains, "Yoni broke his hand pretty bad, (he has) breaks in a number of places. It required surgery that he just did today, it was successful but he has all these pins and needles hanging out that have to stay in there for four weeks. That's why we've cancelled our tour. I know a lot of you are disappointed but we are very disappointed... because we are broke now!
"I don't like cancelling things but there's a time and a place when it's necessary and that's what we've done for the healing."
The brothers plan to reschedule the scrapped dates and they have assured fans there is still a "90 per cent" chance they will continue with the European leg of their trek, due to start next month (Oct11) in Germany.
