British/Irish boyband The Wanted have cancelled their European tour dates citing "unforeseeable" changes to their schedule.

The news comes after bandmember Max George left the group's U.S. tour on Sunday (08Dec13) to "attend some family matters" in the U.K., with the group continuing as a four-piece for their remaining dates in America.

The European tour cancellation was announced in a post on The Wanted's official website on Tuesday (10Dec13). The message reads, "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 (14)."

A post on their account, reads, "We're really sorry guys and totally gutted the European dates had to be cancelled. Uk, Ireland & Us are still on. It is out of our hands."

It is not clear whether the scheduling changes are a result of George's personal matters.
