Maroon 5 have been forced to pull out of their scheduled summer tour dates in the United Kingdom and Ireland, with the band citing "unforseen scheduling conflicts" as the reason behind the sudden change. The band posted the news on their official website, assuring fans that refunds would be made available and that any tickets already bought will be valid for the rescheduled dates.

The 'Moves Like Jagger' hit-makers were due to perform six dates over the course of June, including two shows at London's O2 Arena and one in Ireland at the Dublin O2 Arena. All six dates have now been moved to January 2014, with the band telling fans that should they prefer a refund they need to return their tickets no later than June 30. Frontman Adam Levine included a message to fans with the website's statement, saying; "We are truly sorry for any inconvenience we have caused our European fans. When we come over in January we will put on a show to remember."

The band will undergo the same routine as had initially been planned, beginning in Birmingham and ending in Dublin, however one thing other than the dates that has changed is the Scottish venue the band will be playing. Rather than play at the Braehead Arena in Glasgow, the band will instead be playing at The Hydro Arena, also in Glasgow, which opens in September 2013 in anticipation for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The U.K. and Ireland aren't the only suffering nations, as the other two dates in the group's European calendar have been postponed until January too. The July 2 show at Paris' Bercy Arena and the July 3 gig at Amsterdam's Ziggo Dome have been rescheduled to 19 and 20 of January, respectively.
