NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — An injured drummer has forced the Black Keys to cancel the upcoming European and UK legs of their current Turn Blue world tour.
In a news release regarding the cancellation, a spokesperson wrote: "Due to a serious shoulder injury to Patrick, The Black Keys’ forthcoming European concerts, part of their Turn Blue World Tour, have been cancelled up until March 10. Regrettably, due to prior scheduled commitments and venue availability, efforts to reschedule the original dates were unsuccessful; therefore all tickets will be refunded in full at their point of purchase. "
The band said: “We are very sorry to have to cancel our upcoming performances through March 10. Patrick needs time to heal. We thank all of our fans for their support and we’re looking forward to getting back on the road.”
