Maximo Park were scheduled to jet to America for a series of dates in September (09), starting in Seattle, Washington and concluding in Washinton, D.C.
But the rockers have been forced to scrap all of their gigs, citing illness has the reason for the cancellations.
A statement from the band's website reads, "We regret to inform you that, for personal reasons, we've had to cancel our tour of the USA, which was planned for September.
"We wholeheartedly apologize to everyone who was looking forward to seeing us perform and we will do everything we can to reschedule the shows. We've always enjoyed visiting North America in the past and are bitterly disappointed to be missing out this time. When we return, it'll be with as much energy and passion as ever."
Maximo Park aren't the only rock stars to be struck down by injury and ailments this month (Aug09) - Steven Tyler, Slipknot's Joey Jordison, Rod Stewart, Tommy Lee, Liam Gallagher and Zakk Wylde are all currently out of action.
