Black Keys cancel upcoming shows due to Patrick Carney’s shoulder injury

Blues rock band, The Black Keys, were forced to cancel most of their tour dates due to a shoulder serious injury drummer Patrick Carney sustained.

The entire European tour which was supposed to begin on February 16th and go through March 10th has been cancelled. The band said in a press release, “Due to prior scheduled commitments and venue availability, efforts to reschedule the original dates were unsuccessful; therefore all tickets will be refunded in full at their point of purchase.”

Carney suffered a dislocated shoulder after a wave slammed into him into the floor of the ocean in early January. He was hospitalized for a brief amount of time.

The band wants to return to touring in April for their Australian tour.
