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.

The band's website states: "While the bus did indeed go off the road, plunging about 8-10 vertical feet into a muddy ravine off to the right of the Thruway thus coming to a very abrupt stop, it did not flip or roll."

Cuomo is thought to have suspected cracked ribs.
