NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Canadian folk/alt rockers The Crash Test Dummies have been forced to pull the plug on their Fall tour due to health issues for frontman Brad Roberts.
According to a post on the band's website, Roberts has been suffering from "chronic and worsening back problems stemming from a herniated disk" and his doctors have advised him that touring will not be an option for the remainder of the year. The band had been planning a tour of the U.S. and Canada.
"Roberts is deeply disappointed, and knows that Crash Test Dummies fans will be disappointed as well, but his medical condition has to be his priority right now." the post read.
Originally founded in 1988, the Crash Test Dummies saw their first major commercial success with their 1991 album "The Ghosts that Haunt Me" which featured the single 'Superman's Song."
As of yet, there has been no word on rescheduled dates. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
