Real Friends Cancel Upcoming Appearance With Simple Plan Due To Health Issues

It is unfortunate to announce Real Friends have had to pull out of Simple Plan‘s hotly anticipated No Pads, No Helmets… Just Balls 15th Anniversary Tour.

Frontman Dan Lambton has released this statement in the wake of the announcement:

“Hello everybody, Dan here. I will get right to the point and let you all know that Real Friends will have to cancel our upcoming international appearances in Australia, Europe, and the UK.
“Since coming home from recording, I am sober, on new medication, and undergoing an intensive outpatient group therapy program per the recommendation of my therapist. We all want to be the best possible versions of ourselves as individuals and in turn be the best possible version of Real Friends. We appreciate your support and understanding, and we want to note that this conversation about mental health will continue, but for now I’ll be continuing my treatment. Thank you all for your love and support”.

We wish him all the best here at Wall of Sound.

Coinciding with this announcement, comes the news our very own Stateside have been personally handpicked by Simple Plan themselves to join the tour around the country. We managed to catch them on tour (Review Here) and it was an unmissable experience.
