Rockers Survivor have scrapped all dates and appearances for September and October (14) so they can mourn tragic singer Jimi Jamison.

The star, who replaced Dave Bickler in the band in 1984, died after suffering a heart attack on 31 August (14), and his bandmates are still coming to terms with the 63 year old's passing.

Bickler, who returned to the band and shared frontman duties with Jamison says, "We are devastated by this loss. We trust that our fans will understand our wanting to take some time to mourn and remember our brother."

The majority of the dates cancelled are shows in Britain in October (14). The Eye of the Tiger hitmakers plan to return to the road in November.
