The ‘Castle On The Hill’ hitmaker has announced he will be unable to perform in Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong after he fractured his right wrist and left elbow in a bike accident in London.
He shared on his Facebook page: “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.”
The 26-year-old singer had previously revealed he was “waiting on some medical advice” before making a final decision about his upcoming shows.
He shared: “I’ve had a bit of a bicycle accident and I’m currently waiting on some medical advice, which may affect some of my upcoming shows. Please stay tuned for further news. Ed x.”
