Eagles Of Death Metal Forced to Cancel European Tour


Eagles Of Death Metal have been forced to cancel the rest of their European tour because frontman Jesse Hughes has torn a tendon in his finger.

They had already postponed the dates following the terrorist attack at the Le Bataclan theater in Paris.

Eighty-nine people were killed and 200 injured during the attack in November 2015.

The band returned to Paris earlier this month for an emotional performance for survivors at the Olympia.

The remaining eight dates in Europe have now had to be cancelled because of Jesse Hughes’ injury.

In a statement, posted on Facebook, EODM wrote: “Eagles of Death Metal has regrettably been forced to cancel the remainder of their European tour.

“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.”

EODM are due to play Reading and Leeds festivals later in the summer and those gigs are not expected to be affected by Jesse Hughes’ injury.

Speaking about returning to Europe to finish the tour after the Paris attacks, he told the news agency AFP, Jesse Hughes said he thought it was his “sacred duty”.
