Cage the Elephant announced today that they’ve been forced to cancel a handful of their upcoming European tour dates due to a serious leg injury that guitarist Nick Bockrath suffered onstage during the band’s performance at this past weekend’s Pinkpop festival in the Netherlands.
“We regret to inform the fans that Cage The Elephant will be cancelling the upcoming European tour dates from 12 June to 20 June,” the group writes via social media. “Sadly, our guitarist Nick Bockrath had an accident on stage at PINKPOP and injured his leg badly (ruptured PCL, torn ACL, fractured tibia, damaged meniscus). He tried to play through two shows, but he now requires immediate surgery and is currently getting the medical attention he needs. All ticket refunds will be available at original point of purchase (with the exception of Isle of Wight Festival). We will keep you posted on future dates.”
