Cage The Elephant Cancel UK And European Tour Dates

Bad news for Cage the Elephant fans. The band has canceled a batch of shows in the U.K. and Europe this month after guitarist Nick Bockrath injured his leg in an “accident onstage” requiring him to sit out some shows. The canceled stops include their June 16th appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival.

“We regret to inform the fans that Cage the Elephant will be canceling the upcoming European tour dates from 12 June to 20 June,” the band said in the statement. “Sadly, our guitarist Nick Bockrath had an accident onstage at ‘PINKPOP’ and injured his leg badly.”

It continued, “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.”

Check out the canceled dates below.

Cage the Elephant still plan to embark on their North American tour with Beck and Spoon next month. Find those dates here.
