More bad news for Eagles of Death Metal. The band returned to Europe for the first time following the Paris attacks for a few triumphant gigs this month but are being forced to cancel the rest. Singer/guitarist Jesse Hughes tore a tendon in his finger and cannot continue the tour. The band shared the following statement:
"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."
