In a statement posted on their official website Tuesday, the band claim “unforeseeable changes” in scheduling is to blame.

According to the group, all ticket money will be given back to the purchasers.

“To all our fans in mainland Europe, we're really sorry but due to some unforeseeable changes in our scheduling, we're having to cancel our European tour dates in February/March,” wrote the band. “Rest assured all tickets are refundable, and we do hope to see you again really soon! The UK, Ireland & US legs of the tour are not affected. Thanks for your ongoing support. Lots of love, The Wanted xx.”

The band will be playing The O2 on Monday, March 24 2014 and are still committed to their Dublin date.
