5 Seconds Of Summer Drummer Ashton Irwin Hospitalized; Diagnosed with Appendicitis

5 Seconds Of Summer drummer Ashton Irwin has been hospitalized.

The band informed fans of the news via Twitter that Ashton is currently in hospital with appendicitis and they have been forced to cancel their upcoming appearances in the United Kingdom and Japan this month as a result.

UPDATE: 5 Seconds Of Summer have released the following statement:

Hi guys, we have some news for you today. Ashton has come down with a case of appendicitis and had to have an operation. He’s doing great and will be back up & running in no time, but he’ll need to rest up for the next week or so… Unfortunately this means that we’ll no longer be able to fly back to the UK this weekend for the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards. We will also be postponing next week’s trip to Japan (more info to come soon).

We are so sorry to everyone that had planned on seeing us. We were so excited to come see you all and we never want to make any of you sad… We hope you understand!

Thanks so much for supporting all we do, we love you. Can’t wait for us four lads to get back on the road (minus one band appendix) and rock out with you all again soon!

Ash, Cal, Mikey & Luke x
