Ed Sheeran suffered a cycling accident over the weekend and the BBC reports that he’s been forced to cancel tour dates in Asia as a result. The pop star fractured his right wrist and left elbow when a car reportedly hit him, and in an Instagram post he writes: “I’m waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that.” Dates in Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo, and Hong Kong have been affected. Read his message to fans below.
A visit to my doctors confirmed fractures in my right wrist and left elbow that will leave me unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future. Sadly, this means that the following shows will not be able to go ahead as planned: Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong. I’m waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that. Please stay tuned for more details. PS – Ed isn’t typing this as he has both arms casted/bandaged.
…and ICYMI: Jessie Ware is really fucking mad at Pitchfork for being so vicious to Sheeran in their review of ÷. Watch what she says at the 2:33 mark:
