Earlier this week, it was reported that Ed Sheeran injured his arm in a bike accident. “Ive had a bit of a bicycle accident and I’m currently waiting on some medical advice, which may affect some of my upcoming shows,” he wrote on Instagram. Today, Sheeran has canceled several of his current tour dates, and detailed the painful injury. Sheeran has fractures in his right wrist and left elbow “that will leave me unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future,” he posted. (He didn’t write the caption himself, on account of the injury.)

Sheeran has canceled performances through November 5. He was scheduled to perform in Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. The rest of his Asian tour dates are scheduled through the middle of November, before breaking until March 2018.
