Ed Sheeran has cancelled several of his upcoming Divide tour performances following a bike crash in which he sustained fractures to his right wrist and left elbow.
The singer unveiled his injuries on Instagram on Monday and confirmed he will not be performing a string of tour dates in Asia after getting knocked off his bike by a car in London.
Sheeran was due to take the stage in Taepei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong but since both his arms are damaged, an assistant helped him type a message announcing the shows’ postponements.
Alongside an image of his cast, Ed’s message read: “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.”
The 26-year-old singer has not put a date on when he will return to the stage, admitting that he will let the healing process run its course.
“I’m waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that,” he said. “Please stay tuned for more details. PS – Ed isn’t typing this as he has both arms casted/bandaged.”
