Eagles Of Death Metal Cancel European Tour Due To Injury


Eagles Of Death Metal‘s rescheduled European tour has been cancelled—though this time under much less tragic circumstances. Frontman/guitarist Jesse Hughes has torn a tendon in his finger, causing him to require some time off. The following statement was issued on the matter:

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. 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. Said Hughes: “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.” EODM will be cancelling the last eight shows of their current European run.”

The initial half of the tour was a triumphant return for the band, as the run was originally cut short back in November of 2015 during the terrorist attacks in Paris, France. Several armed gunmen stormed the band’s November 13th, 2015 show at the Le Bataclan venue and killed nearly 100 in attendance, before being shot by police themselves. Despite this latest setback, the band did manage to return to Paris and play a show there, some footage from that can be viewed here.
