A scheduled ACL replacement surgery on her knee will take Wiedlin out of commission for up to a year, according to a statement posted on her website.

That means the group’s appearance on Good Morning America, scheduled for July 16 in Central Park, is off as well. Their formal statement: “The band is heartbroken and hopes their fans will send best wishes for Jane’s speedy recovery. In the meantime, tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.”
