Cage The Elephant Cancel UK Tour Due To On Stage Injury

-

It has been announced that Cage The Elephant have canceled their UK tour after their guitar player Nick Bockrath sustained a serious leg injury.

It’s a terrible blow for the band who have been forced to cancel a host of European dates that included the prestigious Isle of Wight Festival after Bockrath injured his leg on stage at Sweden’s Pinkpop Festival last weekend.

The band released the following statement: “We regret to inform the fans that Cage The Elephant will be cancelling the upcoming European tour dates from 12 June to 20 June. Sadly, our guitarist Nick Bockrath had an accident on stage at “PINKPOP” and injured his leg badly (ruptured PCL, torn ACL, fractured tibia, damaged meniscus).”

“He tried to play through two shows, but he now requires immediate surgery and is currently getting the medical attention he needs. All ticket refunds will be available at original point of purchase (with the exception of Isle of Wight Festival). We will keep you posted on future dates.”

While it’s yet to be confirmed if the band will return for future shows, all affected dates can be seen in full below.

12 June – Amsterdam, NLD at Melkweg Max

14 June – London, UK at Heaven

15 June – Isle of Wight, UK at Isle of Wight Festival

17 June – Edinburgh, UK at The Liquid Room

18 June – Birmingham, UK at O2 Institute2
