Rockers Black Veil Brides have axed the remainder of their European tour due to illness.

The American group was forced to reschedule a number of shows on its The Wild Ones tour earlier this month (Apr13) after frontman Andy Biersack fell sick with the flu.

He took to the band's page at the time and apologised for having to postpone the gigs, and expressed his hope of making a full recovery in time for their concert in Copenhagen, Denmark on Friday (19Apr13).

However, Black Veil Brides have since decided to scrap its entire trek after Biersack failed to make a complete recovery.

A statement from the group reads, "We are sorry to have to say that due to illness we have been forced to cancel the remaining eight shows of the European tour and reschedule them to a later date. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you and we promise to do all that we can to make it up to you. Please try to understand this does not come easy for us... Again we Will make these dates up to you soon."
