The Black Keys Cancel European Tour Because Of Patrick Carney’s Shoulder Injury

At the beginning of this month, Black Keys drummer dislocated his shoulder after getting knocked over by a giant wave while on vacation at St. Bart’s. Now, the band has announced that they have cancelled the European leg of their world tour in support of Turn Blue due to his injury. “We are very sorry to have to cancel our upcoming performances through March 10. Patrick needs time to heal,” the band said on their website. “We thank all of our fans for their support and we’re looking forward to getting back on the road.” The dates won’t be rescheduled.
