Oz prettyboys The Vines have pulled out of playing the Carling Weekend in Reading and Leeds. The band had already pulled out of their US tour supporting Incubus due to mental and physical health reasons.
As well as this, the band feel they would not be ready to return to the stage in time for the festival. They have, as they would like to reiterate, not split up. They're really sorry and hope their fans understand the situation.
In other festival cancellation news, DiS is throwing a big girlie strop at the fact The Shins have mysteriously dropped off the radar for T In The Park, although they're still due to play Ireland's Oxegen festival that same weekend.
