McFly have postponed their Anthology Tour until September after Harry Judd suffered an injury and needs time to recover.

In a statement today, former Strictly Come Dancing winner Harry said he was "gutted" to be postponing the tour after suffering an acute disc herniation at C6/7 level, but it was the only option after he "tried everything" to be fit for the stage.

He said: "I'm absolutely gutted that we've had to postpone the tour. I've honestly tried everything to make it work, but I'd never want to do a tour where I wouldn't be able to give you guys the 110 per cent performance you deserve every night. I'm going to do all the rehab possible to get myself ready to do the most epic shows we've ever put on!"

Bandmate Tom Fletcher jokingly added: "Sorry we've had to move the tour. Completely Harry's fault. All complaints to be sent to @mcflyharry. On a more positive note, it gives Danny more time to learn the words to our songs. See you all in September."

A rep for the band said all original June tickets will be valid for the corresponding shows in September. Ticket holders can contact their point of purchase with any questions.

The new dates are:

McFly announced their Anthology Tour in April: their most ambitious tour to date. Rather than playing a selection of tracks from their whole catalogue at each date, they decided to play three shows in different cities, with each show dedicated to a different McFly album.

The first date in every city features songs from Room on The Third FloorWonderland and Motion In The Ocean, and the final night, Radio:ACTIVE and Above The Noise.

Get well soon, Harry!
