British rockers The Darkness have cancelled a planned tour of Australia and New Zealand with Joan Jett And The Blackhearts due to their drummer's ongoing hip problems.

Ed Graham has previously undergone surgery for the joint issue, but the ailment has now resurfaced - prompting the group to axe shows Down Under, which were due to kick off on 2 April (13) in Adelaide.

The band will continue with its current concert commitments in Europe and Graham will take time out to address his health battle when the gigs end in Antwerp, Belgium on 21 March (13).

A statement from the band's management reads, "It is with great regret that we are having to cancel The Darkness' planned April dates in Australia/New Zealand. As some of you may be aware, Ed has had some prior history with hip problems, which resulted in extensive surgery a few years ago, and caused him to miss some U.S. dates in 2012.

"Unfortunately, over the course of the past few weeks' touring, Ed has been feeling that all is not right in that department, and has been advised to undergo some rest & tests before potentially taking a backwards step and making matters worse.

"He will continue with the last few European shows and will then be forced to take some time out immediately to ensure him back to 100 per cent fitness. This very sadly results in the immediate cancellation of the Antipodean tour. We will of course look to reschedule dates into our scheduling and itinerary as soon as possible."
