City and Colour frontman Dallas Green has scrubbed the band's scheduled performance at the 2014 Juno Awards, scheduled to be held in Winnipeg, MB on March 30.

According to a press release posted Feb. 7 at JunoAwards.ca, the three time-Juno winning folk- rocker has reversed his decision to play at Canada's premiere music awards presentation to allow room for a new nominee to take the stage.

The ex-Alexisonfire guitarist explains his reason in a statement, writing, "Given that I have not been nominated this year, I would much rather see a new nominee be afforded the opportunity to perform on the show and have the same experience. I’m sorry to disappoint anyone hoping to see me."

City and Colour is still confirmed to play Winnipeg's MTS Centre on May 17 as part of their upcoming cross-Canada trek to promote their latest release "The Hurry and the Harm," which kicks off May 3 in Halifax, NS at Metro Centre and wraps up May23 in Vancouver, BC at Deer Lake Park.

The 2014 Juno Awards will be held March 24-30 in Winnipeg with the awards ceremony scheduled to air live on CTV Sunday, March 30 from MTS Centre.

Juno performers scheduled so far include: Robin Thicke, Ryder, Tegan and Sara and Walk off the Earth.

Arcade Fire leads Juno nominees with six nominatons, closely tailed by Michael Buble and Toronto indie-rocker Serena Ryder with five nominations each, and by Celine Dion, Drake, Hedley, and Tegan and Sara, who each earned four nominations.

Did you know? City and Colour has won Junos for Album of the Year and twice for Songwriter of the Year.
