Max George - The Wanted cancel European tour dates

The Wanted have cancelled all of their Eurpoean tour dates for next year.

The news comes just a few days after band member Max George's shock departure from their US tour gigs to deal with an ''urgent family matter''.

The five piece group - which also includes Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes - posted a statement on their official website today (11.12.13) apologising to fans.

It reads: ''To all our fans in mainland Europe, we're really sorry but due to some unforeseeable changes in our scheduling, we're having to cancel our European tour dates in February/March.''

Despite cancelling dates in arenas in Paris, Munich and Amsterdam among others, the band are still going ahead with their UK and US dates.

They continued: ''Rest assured all tickets are refundable, and we do hope to see you again really soon! The UK, Ireland & US legs of the tour are not affected. Thanks for your ongoing support. Lots of love, The Wanted xx.''

The 'Walks Like Rihanna' singers also posted a message to fans on their Twitter page, saying: ''We're really sorry guys and totally gutted the European dates had to be cancelled. UK, Ireland & US are still on. It is out of our hands x.''

It has not been revealed why 25-year-old Max has been forced to fly home from the US.

But the band posted on Twitter: ''To let all our #TWFanmily know, @MaxTheWanted headed home to attend some family matters & won't be with us for the rest of the trip.

''We will crack on as a 4-piece so we look forward to seeing you all in Charlotte, Montreal, Buffalo, Green Bay & Chicago. Thanks all for understanding. Send positive thoughts @MaxTheWanted's way. [sic]''
