Due to a shoulder injury suffered earlier this year by the band’s Patrick Carney, The Black Keys have been forced to cancel all upcoming European dates on their ‘Turn Blue’ tour.
Original dates will not be rescheduled - instead all tickets will be refunded at their original point of purchase.
“We are very sorry to have to cancel our upcoming performances through March 10. Patrick needs time to heal. We thank all of our fans for their support and we’re looking forward to getting back on the road,” say the band.
Crossed-out shows include London’s O2 Arena and dates in Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham.
