Weezer cancel US tour after Rivers Cuomo hurt in road accident

Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo, has suffered minor injuries, after the band's tour bus crashed in New York on Sunday (December 6).

Weezer's US tour promoting new album Ratitude has now been cancelled, after the bus slid on ice and fell into a roadside ditch, travelling between Toronto and Boston.

Cuomo is thought to have suspected cracked ribs.
