David Bowie Cancels Tour Due To Shoulder Injury

Singer suffering from trapped/pinched nerve.

It's been a rough month for David Bowie.

After being hit in the eye with a lollipop (see "Lollypalooza: Lollipop In The Eye Stops Bowie Show") and later injuring his shoulder, the singer has canceled the remaining dates of his European tour.

Bowie was advised by his doctors to cancel the rest of his trek, according to an official statement. "Due to the continuing pain and to prevent further injury from a pinched nerve," the statement read, "doctors have advised David Bowie to cancel his performances at the 11 remaining European festivals slated through July."

The singer has been suffering from a "trapped/pinched nerve" in his shoulder and was forced to cut short a concert in Prague, Czech Republic, on June 23 due to the pain.

"Bowie reluctantly agreed" to scrap the remainder of his tour, the statement read, "in an effort to give fans enough warning and aid promoters in finding a replacement headliner in time for a number of festivals." On Tuesday, Bowie canceled his performance at Denmark's Roskilde Festival. Slipknot will take his place at that annual concert.

No word yet on how tickets for the canceled dates will be refunded, or whether Bowie plans to reschedule the shows.
