Eagles of Death Metal have canceled the remaining eight dates of their Nos Amis European tour due to a hand injury suffered by singer-guitarist Jesse Hughes. “Eagles of Death Metal has regrettably been forced to cancel the remainder of their European tour due to founder Jesse Hughes tearing a tendon in his finger,” the band wrote in a since-deleted post on their Facebook page.
“Hughes has tried to play through the injury during the current tour, but doctors have advised that the only way to properly heal it is to stop playing now, or risk further injury and having to cancel several weeks’ worth of shows,” the statement continued.
The Nos Amis tour was a set of dates that had been rescheduled after the attack at an Eagles of Death Metal show at the Bataclan in Paris in November. The Nos Amis tour was scheduled to wrap up March 7th in Lille, France. The band is currently scheduled to begin a five-concert run in South America on March 9th.
“I’m devastated that we cannot continue what has been a life-changing return to Europe, but I need to get repaired so we can continue to play rock music around this beautiful world, including coming back to Europe even stronger in the summer,” Hughes says in a statement.
