Tom expressed disappointment about not being able join his McFly bandmates for the final shows of the McFly tour.

In another post, Tom wrote, “It’s not always easy but McFly’s here forever… one way or another!”
He added, “Thank you so much for all your messages. I’m fine, but it means obviously I’m isolating and can’t finish the McFly tour.
“I’m so sorry, I’m so gutted about [it]. It hurts so much letting you guys down, you have no idea.”
He explained that Tom Abisgold will step in to replace him in the upcoming McFly shows, and that he has been a McFly fan for years.
