Eagles of Death Metal cancel tour

Rockers Eagles of Death Metal have scrapped the rest of their European tour so frontman Jesse Hughes can recover from a finger injury.
The band were scheduled to perform in Treviso, Italy on Saturday (27Feb16) and play further concerts through France and Spain until the end of their trek in Lille, France on 3 March (16).
The dates have all been scrapped because Hughes has torn a tendon in one of his fingers and has been advised by doctors to drop the shows to rest it properly.
The band explained on its Facebook.com page, writing, “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.”
Their statement included a quote from Hughes, which reads, “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 attended the BRIT Awards in London on Wednesday (24Feb16), where the band was nominated for Best International Group. They lost out to Tame Impala.
Earlier this month (Feb16), Eagles of Death Metal returned to Paris, France to play their first full concert since the terror attacks in November (15), when 89 fans were killed during their gig at the Bataclan venue.
