Earlier this month, Ed Sheeran shared some bad news with his fans in Asia that his upcoming tour dates would be rescheduled because he broke his arm in a bicycle accident. See the Instagram announcement below:
A visit to my doctors confirmed fractures in my right wrist and left elbow that will leave me unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future. Sadly, this means that the following shows will not be able to go ahead as planned: Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong. I’m waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that. Please stay tuned for more details. PS – Ed isn’t typing this as he has both arms casted/bandaged.
Sheeran announced over the weekend the new dates for Osaka, Tokyo and Manila in April 2018, but unfortunately for fans in Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta, those shows have been cancelled due to scheduling conflicts. All tickets for the original shows will be valid for the new dates. The tour dates in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Mumbai and Dubai will go ahead as scheduled.
“A follow-up visit to my doctors today confirmed that I will be good to go from the Singapore shows onwards. Osaka, Tokyo and Manila will be rescheduled for April 2018. My dates in Taipei, Seoul, Hong Kong and Jakarta will sadly need to be cancelled as it’s just been impossible to reschedule these for next year,” Sheeran writes in an official statement through AEG Asia.
“I’m really gutted that not all the postponed dates could be rescheduled and I am working hard with my team to try and come back to these places as soon as I can to see all of you. I’m sorry to everyone who has been affected by this.”
